feel the wind newly on my skin,
touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.

or too menial when offered
to Thee in loving service.

To others, something amazing, extraordinary, or unexpected.

Energy, mass, gravity and the rest of existence
are all so improbable.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
