I stretch my arms wide -- wider still, opening my spine --
feel my feet reaching their roots into the rocky ground beneath,
breathe in the mountain air on the edge of this upstate New York valley,
and invite the spectacle to embrace me with its demonstration of holy life.
If its beauty was a wave, I would be drenched right now -- joyfully soaked!
When I turn away from the gift of this panorama, back to my daily living,
O Resplendent God, keep my heart wide-eyed in deep appreciation of
the breadth and depth and diversity of your essence in creation.
Surely your goodness extends beyond what my eyes can see,
is more than what my soul can begin to comprehend!
O Holy Expanse, expand me by your sheer glory!
