Our Legacy

Not always monochrome,
this thing called life.  Yesterday,
the day so gray the mist almost
seeped into the brain.  Not quite
rain, but damp and chill.

Today the sun’s so bright…
as if it never will quit shining.
Involuntarily I am humming
a happy song.  The sharp edges
have rounded, blended.
The inconvenience

of confinement becomes another
thing… a gift of time to contemplate
being.  This situation not of our
choosing, but viewed in the right light
it can become a time

to clean the gathered cobwebs
from our minds…a time to realize
that life and breath
should not be wasted on ‘what if’ …
because every moment
becomes our legacy.

    1. Thank you, Mary Jane,

      It won’t be long before the sun will come peeking through that mist. It’s April, there will be showers, but the flowers will follow.
      Thank you so much for the visit and your kind words.

    Every storm brings a rainbow, and every cloud gives way. None of it should ever make us forget who we are and what we believe, for the truth of us is what remains when all else has passed.
