Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

Tuesday, 8 October 2013

Today the oldest you've ever been
And the youngest you'll ever be again.
Today, the rain beats down on your head
And the sun shines on your face
In a way that might not happen, ever again.
Today the mess of the world grows,
As powerfully as the hope in your heart-
Let today be a long moment to reflect appreciation,
Let today be a short journey to grateful consciousness,
Let today be a patience in the face of fickle mortality.
