Seattle 7 a.m.

I was sitting alone in my car,
in rush hour;
dead-stopped on an eight-lane highway;
the sun slanting in from the East,
warming the side of my face;
deep green coniferous trees framing my view
of a robin's egg blue sky smeared with pewter-white clouds;
and I was overcome...
with wonder and gratitude at the miracle of it all...
This world.
This life.
