Love all that has been created by God, both the whole and every grain of sand. Love every leaf and every ray of light. Love the beasts and the birds, love the plants, love every separate fragment. If you love each separate fragment, you will understand the mystery of the whole resting in God.

— FM Dostoevsky

Rising from the water
in which my body lay,
the steam dances
with watchful vigilance
of interweaving sunbeams.

Enslaved no more
by her watery captor,
she seizes the opportunity,
takes hold of the wind
and vanishes into the sky.
