Never ask,
"What difference
have I made?"
The world was transformed
the moment you were born,
forever changed
just by your being
here and holding
the planet in the palm
of awareness, the warmth
of your chest before
you gently laid it down in
the nest of darkness again.
What did you whisper
to the forest?
What did you breathe
to stir the sea
and cause the earth to
grow such star-drenched
rainbow wings?
