How did I lose it all?

opened eyes
to a new day
planning, doing, more
the minutes slip by gone
stare into the setting sun
a stunning glowing golden sky
and all those to do’s laying silent
to the wonder and awe of this moment.

. . .

Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful.

And always—

Be kind. Be brave. Be you.
