In the context of humanity

Half Dome, Yosemite National Park, California, United States of America
I try to keep people in the frame
When exploring esoteric thoughts
On the nature of reality
The expansiveness of existence

Grace, beauty, the sense of the divine
Whether or not these qualities exist in the world
In the objects I observe
Or are a construction of my consciousness
I share the experience of them
With every other human being

A lesson of oneness I take to heart
Whenever I experience awe
Sharing a nod and a knowing smile with another
A sigh among strangers
Is all I require to accept
I share the same sense of something greater with everyone
No matter what name we give the experience
We have all grasped the divine
