I woke up the next morning and realized I have lost nothing. I have bird songs. I have my hands that I can teach to make music or bread or a soft knitted cap for my child.
Somewhere right now
rhinos are charging towards each other
sperm are congratulating themselves on hitting the jackpot
babies are opening their eyes
teenagers are bored
plants are eating sunlight
billions of trees are calmly giving us the oxygen we take into our bodies with every breath
seeds are sprouting among the earthworms busy eating the earth
anthills are being stepped on by curious children
People are telling each other their stories around the world using machines that magically transmit a photograph of a cat wearing an orange rind on its head, among other things, through the air on invisible waves.
someone is eating the best sandwich they have ever had in their entire life
as a million dying breaths are released to become one with the clouds.
