sleeping outside

for the last five evenings i have slept outside

behind the house---on my back looking

sheltered by marvelous sky

the perfect ceiling

"People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. 
But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. 
Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: 
a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. 
All is a miracle."
— Thich Nhat Hanh

to always look up
