WORDS LIKE LIGHT

ADVENTURE

            Each moment of each day is quite literally an adventure. The word derives from the Latin word meaning ‘arrive’, and there is no doubt that, in each and every moment, something brand new arrives – an innovative thought making an appearance, a fresh feeling presenting itself, a scene materializing that has never been seen before. My life often seems to be a tedious test, but in reality it is always, here and now, a stirring escapade, a caper among limitless mysterious miracles. Even if I don’t realize it, life continuously sends me off on a rousing romp, every single moment, part of its unceasing, adventurous quest, an expedition that I should welcome and love. I just have to open my eyes – and my heart and my arms.

MAKING ENDS MEET
(about Bernice D., 61, Blessings, CT, USA)

She knows 
she doesn't have to make ends meet, 
because that's what life always does. 
The ends of moments meet
to form all the endless thousands of years, 
and every end of sorrow 
slides together with others 
to make some thoughts 
that shine forever. 
Life loves 
making ends of days meet 
to make miracles 
of everlasting starlight, 
and ends of joys 
jump together in friendship
with the ends of animosity 
to set loose the endless dance 
of all ends and beginnings, 
which is why 
Bernice believes 
there's really no end 
anywhere 
to anything
ever.
