The Molecule

Photos by Mark Renz

We may as well be two atoms of hydrogen
and one atom of oxygen,
sharing a close space in the cab of my truck
and staring through the windshield
at a countryside passing us by
at 50 miles per hour.

I offer the oxygen atom to Darwin
because he is always a breath of fresh air
whenever we're together,

So here we are...a complete molecule,
bonding with a single purpose
to enjoy a single moment in the vast
14-1/2 billion year history of life.

Can anything be more spiritual than that?
