I Am Standing

I am standing
on the dunes
in the heat of summer
and I am listening

to mockingbird again
who is tonguing
his embellishments
and, in the distance,

the shy
weed loving sparrow
who has but one
soft song

which he sings
again and again
and something
somewhere inside

my own unmusical self
begins humming:
thanks for the beauty of the world.
Thanks for my life.

My shortest sermon ever:

There is beauty everywhere
It connects all beings
Listen to  this song of interconnection
Sing in grateful praise
Stand on the side of love

What would be your shortest sermon ever?
