Unlock the mystery

I'm trying to get a handle on this --
I don't understand
why it should be so difficult
to see the connections here;
between you and me,
between earth and sky,
between these ants --
so desperate for food
to nourish their young --
and my own children
whose longings for sweetness
fill my late night sink...

Unlock this mystery,
if you will:
how can I best honor creation,
both my own and yours?
