It Smiles Back At Me
Tonight I sat
to the sound of the birds that
kept telling me things like:
This is exactly where you are meant to be.
I said back to the birds, "Thank you,"
because I think so too.
It's a thought that comes to me in moments
when I'm not thinking much at all--
When I sit down to read at night and look
at the twinkling lights of Cali, Colombia and
at the moon above and smile.
Because I think that maybe,
in this exact moment,
The Universe is in fact
smiling back at me.
