As the dim winter morning sun shines
Upon the jagged, ice-peaked mountains,
I glanced at the other side of the sky
And can still see glittering stars…
And beyond that–infinite beauty
That radiates under my skin,
Into my soul.
And from this moment, I know
A glistening truth
Long hidden and forgotten
By most people.
What started as a single, quiet bell
Gradually expands itself
Into millions of ringing choirs,
Bellowing for my hand to reach out,
For my mind to open,
For my eyes to finally see
That out there is something
Far grander, better, and truer.
