Contemplation on the Odu Otura Ofun


Drifting snowflakes flutter
across the sky
an effervescent show of
glittering light 
dancing all around
If there is such a thing
as magic
this is surely
what it looks like
trees tipped in merengues
left by god’s frozen sneeze
silence wraps my ears
and cold envelopes my nose
as my breath creates
plumes of steam
that break the stillness
floating away
like my thoughts
I am ever amazed
that in this world of chaos and hatred
there still exists such
wondrous beauty
If only we could all
for a moment
stop
and feel it
perhaps we would make
better
choices
so that someday
our children might
look upon these same miracles
and enjoy the beauty
the universe
has given
us
