FILL THE PAGES

 

Fill in the pages.

Fill the pages with

words and stories.

The world does not

have to be dark.

It does not have to be dreary.

We do not have to be alone.

We need to fill our lives with

people and events.

Stories to tell our children.

Words to light our paths.

No hovering in the darkness,

waiting for our time to come to an end.

But we need to stand in the light

and enjoy life.

It is short and precious.

But it is our right to fill in the pages.

ANCHORS IN THE WIND

ponderation:

Postcard from Tulum by Todd Wall

Life hangs in the balance.

Calm blue waters.

Pretty pink sand.

Palm trees waving in the breeze.

But life hangs in the balance.

One big burst of wind and

the palm trees will go flying.

Lifted from their roots,

from their anchor to the ground.

One small breeze.

One incidental shift in the wind.

And all could be gone.

The more precarious,

the more precious life becomes.
