Art Feature: Learning To Understand

butterflies in my eye
and caterpillars in my hand,
landing on me,
trusting me,
in ways I don't understand.

speckles in my cornea
and light streaming from my eye,
I trust I'll know
how to live with the glow,
and take everything else in stride.

Things happen. I don't always understand why or how, but something caused them to happen. My belief in Causality forces me to rationalize everything that happens, disbelieving in extra-ordinary intervention.

That doesn't mean that extraordinary things don't happen.
