the anticipation of coming to the ocean,
coming home after a journey,
the satisfaction of a clean kitchen,
being able to walk again,
feeling the sunshine,
enjoying the breeze,
a crispy fall morning,
dancing to happy music,
the loving look of someone who is in love with you,
blubbering deep prayer,
God speaking to me in different ways as in a conversation,
a bird singing in the morning,
the local parrots clamoring for attention as they go to their ocean perch
and return during the early evening,
your children wanting to spend time with you,
it will not always be so,
unexpected phone calls,
the sunrise at five,
a beautiful sky,
a ride in the country to see the mountains,
must I go on to mention
We know about today,
We don't know about tomorrow.
Put down the book
Take a deep breath
and go tell someone you love them. slowly.
Brushing their hair off their face
without running off,
was there something I should have asked you about?
I have time to listen;
the book can wait!
