But to Whom? (Prompt: Paranormal Poem)


One day
all I saw was a leafy tall tree
against the cloudless sky,
and off in the distance
birds sang purposefully
in another language
and the brook giggled
past my feet
and it was a tangible
empirical reality,

then
something turned over
in my heart,
and it wasn’t enough
just to observe it all,
I had to express
my thanks
for all this wondrous
mysterious beauty,

but to whom?

So,
now you know
how I took
my first steps
on this walk.
