Why grow impatient
at the dawning of a day loaned to us
in sequence of indeterminate length
while rushing sunset in earnest completion
of work for too little pay?

Life is a gift we open in the present,
hingeing on each moment eyes feast
upon splendor of sky, sea and meadow,
and for all we know will extinguish
without notice, curtain dropping
on this amazing collective illusion.

  1. It is all so much more delicate an existence than we presume is it not Bela? H ❀

    • Hariod, as usual, I couldn’t have described it better, myself. Our existence on this earth is indeed far more tenuous than most humans realize. We are extremely fortunate to have experienced it! ❀

  2. We should probably all take notice more often as I try to do on my morning walks.

  3. “It’s not what you see
    It’s the way that you view it”
