This poem lifts me to remember the miraculous underpinnings of seemingly ordinary encounters. As per "Our Interconnection Saves & Inspires."
from "The Angel Poems"
by Katerina Anghelaki-Rooke

If in nature Being becomes secure
and ceases to whirl about,
if it conceives of change without moving,
the angel will raise frame high
and the image will spread out like a rug
and transport us.
