To me, every hour of the day and night
is an unspeakably perfect miracle.

Walt Whitman : American poet & journalist
Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)

Amen to that, Walt!

I wish I could remember that in all circumstances!

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth
day of life and love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any--lifted from the no
of all nothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginably You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
