The World

The world is so dangerous

I don’t understand how we can live here;

knowing at any moment,

any thing can happen.

 

And yet,

in the oddest moments, happiness

touches us.

 

A cloud breaks open.

 

A preoccupation

vanishes.

 

We wake up to the moment,

and once again, are in love with life;

just as it

is.

 

When darkness falls again,

when the heart is anguished and bruised.

 

When we are disconsolate,

desolate, fear full ~

when some thing terrible happens.

 

And after grief’s long journey.

 

Still

all this can be,

cradled, dissolved and held

in the underlying, ever lasting arms.

 

When we wake up to the moment,

and once again, are here, with life ….

just as it

is.
