Everything comes alive

Do you know that everything comes alive?
i am alive
are you?
or else i wouldn't be here to write
i am sitting here wide eyed
my words they come alive 
spreading across empty paper
i can write about animals- they are alive
how about oceans, lakes, and resouviors?
and the people in autobiographies asleep in their own books
the sky is alive too
with roaring airplanes, clumsy birds, and an insect or two
my mind is alive
on fire in fact
thinking too much about what is alive and not
too much to write about
not enough space or time
so for now i must let the animals all sleep
and the people who i am thinking about
also the mountains, hills and valleys
and the food i am about to eat
what a silly poem to write
but for someone reading this
i"m sure you are awake and alive!
