I try to think of something witty to say But there is nothing. No words to describe the beauty No nouns to describe what I see No verbs to describe what I feel Nothing. I open my mouth to try in vain But there is nothing. Silence, sweet silence betrays my thankful heart The lapse of sound portrays a mind in total awe To this I can only offer a breath of gratitude. Somewhere in the space between thought and deed In this moment there is nothing. I sit and stare at empty space wondering what it is And I smile at the beauty of what I see I finally find the words that seem to say it all “Thank you…” .
