Simple gifts

Echoes of a wave
in the curled edge
of a leaf;
of ocean spray
in the morning dew;
of a shell's scallops
in elongated veins --
simple themes,
repeated everywhere,
a million variations
on the line,
the curve,
the circle and the sphere;
each new iteration
brings its own gift,
its own peace and beauty
into the world.
