I asked
by Just Frances

I asked the grass why it was green;
And it smiled and said just because.

I asked the sky why it was blue;
And it winked secretively.

I asked the wind why it was so fierce;
And it tapped its nose knowingly.

I asked the sun to warm me;
And it did; with passion.

I asked the moon to light my way;
And it did; and the stars joined in.

I asked the oceans why they lapped at the shore;
And they laughed with joy at my curiosity.

I asked myself why I was here;
And the earth sang a song of peace.

The eyes of the heavens glistened.
The joyful tears of the angels above poured onto the land.

And I kept quiet.
And everything was perfect.
