Up Close and Personal

There are times

It is best to fly low,

Very, very low.

There are details

I miss

When soaring high.

And those details,

Like the panorama,

Are beyond amazing.

If I look closely,

My eyes will see

As if through a camera’s zoom lens.

As I examine

The most minute details,

I realize

It is another world,

Intricate and inexhaustible.

There are dark places

And areas of surprising beauty.


May I fly low enough

To see,

To really see.

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight (Romans 12:14-16, ESV).
