Living outside of time
The One Who Divides:
We live our lives in discrete increments
And we imagine that long ago
We give thanks for the sane and the rational.
Over the centuries
We have noticed
The tides of the ocean both high and low,
The seasons of the year that are hot then cold,
The fertility of the earth that flows and rests,
The faces of the moon that wax and wane.
Whatever arrives, leaves,
Whatever is gone, returns:
We give thanks for the regularity of nature.
Outside of Time, Eternal.
Dividing time into years and months and days
And sharing the skies with us.
For that and so much more, we give thanks.
