Infinity Found

Infinity Found If joy could just be measured in a flower, And happiness's worth by breadth of smile, Or all life's pleasures fit into an hour, What of my journey fits into a mile? I traveled far upon an ocean deep, Then trod the land where Ghengis Khan had slain. I crossed to old Formosa without sleep, Then used the trade winds breath imbued with rain. Agana had a marveled beach of snow, Up north was The Land of The Rising Sun. And charting 'gainst the sunset's faintly glow, I find that Kona's beach and I are one. When once again I crossed the ocean blue, I spied the Golden Bear where few had tread. Then strode in awe among the greenish hues-- Cathedrals built by God with trees of red. Next, trekking east to find the midwest plains, I climbed the spires that Nature towered high. Where summit after summit that one gains, Forever brings one closer to the sky. But then, I reach the desert dry and still, And finding peace at last no longer roam. Dichotomy of earth: both hot and chill; This wind-scribed scape is Nature's greatest tome. So what amazing secrets did I learn, While traveling this world both far and wide? I learned that Nature's gifts you cannot earn, And seas of life can change from tide to tide. Still, I found the joy within a flower, And learned the magic worth within a smile, I fit life's pleasures into ev'ry hour, And found infinity within that mile.
