Out of a cave
To behold panoramic views from here to heaven.
Beneath fragile ground
To unearth nuggets more precious than gems.
Amidst jangly chatter
To hear the ringing of a crystal carillon.
In thunderous winds
To weather building storms.
Bitter sadness and regret
To cleanse my palate for bites of bliss.
Onto shifting sand
To steady my stand on slippery steps.
The mysteries beyond the scope of science
To test my trust and reject blind faith.
My folly, my downfall
To stumble on greatness that lives within me.
Myself as I am, and you as you are
To glimpse me in you, you in them and them in us.
