So much in nature passes, unnoticed…

The breeze carries the smell of the grass through lonely places.

The surf pounds the vast coastal borderlands.

The predator takes the prey and feasts.



I stepped outside for a few minutes last night and noticed…

The snow snakes stretching themselves across the bleak landscape.

The wind dancing in the desert.

Orion and the crescent moon, standing side by side, watching over it all.



I turned my back on them and walked away, unnoticed…

Important people to talk to.

Important things to watch.

Important jobs to do.
