Life Is…

January 11, 2014 | 6 Comments


Life is breathing- in, out
It is fighting and settling
And realizing every one else is, too
Though at different speeds
And with a variety of rhythms and grooves

Life is taking a chance- and another
It is a holding on, a stringing together,
An unraveling, a letting go
Storms bring changing winds, drowning tides
An endless sea of tumbling vessels

Life is a mystery- a seeking out
A series of choose-your-own adventures
And pick-your-own demise
It is a maze of lucks and just-around-the-corners
And oh how we graze and bump and nick and bind

Life is a little of this, a lot of that
A sprinkling of tears, a smattering of smiles
The tedium of want, and a modicum of magic
Though mostly a mixture- unmeasurable
At the end of all things, who really keeps score?

Life is a collection- never dusty
Always changing, rearranging, developing, decaying
It is a standing in our own space
And allowing others in, including ourselves
Life is improbable, and therefor, to me, nearly sacred

  1. Yes, life is all that you described, most of us just don’t realize it as we move through it. Beautiful.
