We Are All Here for Just a Brief Moment in Time

We are all here for just a brief moment in time,
very brief.
Now you see it, now you don't,
a wisp of smoke, a flash of light, a guest appearance,
but while we are
let us live with as much love, kindness,
and gratitude, as we can,
and we can!
You, me,
and all of the other 7.9 billion people on the planet.
What an opportunity we have! What a joy!
Will there be hard times? Of course there will.
Moses wandered in the desert for 40 years,
Jesus was crucified,
Martin Luther King was assassinated,
no one ever said this was going to be easy,
but above and beyond all the difficulties,
there is an infinite supply of grace,
wisdom, healing, freedom, joy, laughter, poetry,
music, art, dancing, friendship, peace and love
waiting for each of us to say YES to.
Have you? Will you?

“I have nothing to say, I am saying it, and that is poetry.”
— John Cage

Welcome to my new blog — brief ruminations on what it is that moves me (and maybe YOU, too). If any of my poems inspire you, please forward them to friends. Good muse travels fast. Or could, with your help.
