When A Gnat Dies

By John I. Blair

When a gnat dies
The universe is moved
As much as it will be
For me.

Life is life;
Size does not matter
When we calculate
Its worth.

That life exists
And continues to exist
Eon after eon
Is the miracle

Iíve come to hold
As necessary
To the cosmos
As the cosmos is to life.
