A Love Poem for Life

Love Life!

Life is…
 
… a symphony. We each have a part to play.
… a forest, often thick with uncertainty.
… bright sunlight, shining its brilliance to light our way.
… a jungle, dense with rich diversity.
 
… a garden. We are all intended to grow.
… a stream of rushing water which can carry us along.
… a mountain range, there is much to get over and so much to know.
… the space between the notes of every song.
 
… a banquet, a sumptuous feast for our senses to enjoy.
… a puzzle–to be continually sorted and put back together.
… a traffic jam, a child’s shrill cry, a dog’s loud bark—sometimes it can annoy.
… an integrated ecosystem–we owe our lives to her.
 
… a coastline – an endless sea of expansion.
… an infant with outstretched arms seeking love and embrace.
. . .a playground beckoning us to jump aboard and have fun.
… a toddler exploring every inch of space.
 
 
Life asks us…
 
…  to be patient as we traverse along our journey.
… to discover the vast, inexplicable ME of who we are to BE.
… to honor each precious moment of our time here.
… to not dismiss her with boredom, abandon her with annihilation, nor reject
     her with fear.
… to savor her as we would surprises, to rejoice in new beginnings, to relish every moment of the time we’ve been given here.  
… to honor her because our last breathe may be near.
