You Are

Just like lightning,
you came with thunder.
Like the flutter of a butterfly’s wing,
you caused a typhoon halfway around the world.
Like Demeter’s happiness,
you are the creation of seasons.
Like the roads of Rome,
everything leads to you.
Like the Sistine Chapel,
you are a Renaissance masterpiece.
Like gravity,
you are the force that draw objects together.
Like the steadfast faith of Job,
you are invincible.
Like the deep, vast ocean,
you are endless.

You are nature.
You are chaos.
You are a myth.
You are civilization.
You are history.
You are science.
You are religion.
You are a mystery.

You are the very definition of what makes
this elaborate life,
