How sweet the morning air is!
See how that one little cloud floats like a

How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the
presence of the great elemental forces of nature.

Afghan man makes his early morning rounds
I’ll tell you how the sun rose,
A ribbon at a time.

The news like squirrels ran.
The hills untied their bonnets,
The bobolinks begun.
Then I said softly to myself,
That must have been the sun …
– Emily Dickinson

Everything is transfixed, only the light moves.
