Inventory of Life (Vers Libre)

Upon taking an honest, introspective inventory of life
Do we not encounter a nearly palpable awareness
Of our multiverse’s magnitude and magnificence
The, perhaps, divine omnipotence and omnipresence

Do we not frequently behold such enormity and ubiquity
Interwoven within each rainbow’s dazzling technicolor
Upon fragile flower blossoms glistening with dewdrops
Coexisting beneath the dawn’s early light sunbeams

Hear it within the awakened songbird’s impromptu symphony
The ocean’s surging roar and waterfall’s ceaseless rush
A busy at play, carefree child’s timeless, uninhibited giggles
Our euphoric oohs and aahs; as well as the contented sighs

Feel it within the comforting warmth of a loved one’s held hand
The beating heart’s pulse coursing; circulating subcutaneously
The temperate, summer sunlight cast upon our welcoming faces
The temperamental, winter storm antithesis; its cold shoulder chill

Sense the fragrance at rain shower’s end
The saline scent of the brisk sea breeze
The sweet smell of freshly cut blades of grass,
Our aromatic, home baked, daily bread

Taste the perspiration of an honest day’s work
The character of both joy’s and sorrow’s tears
The distinctive flavor of kisses that unite and invite
The spiciness of life’s shared attributes and diversity
