This Very Moment.

11 Dec
I go forth today 
in the persistence of the listing wind,
with the steady resolve of the maple trees 
vitalized with the energy of the sun's rays cheering the earth 

I go forth today choosing to be -
an essential part of the whole prepared by the creator 
embracing the excellent sky - blue with anticipation 
patient and serene as the slow transformation of clouds 
reflective as the snow of Christmas 

I go forth today 
knowing that this day is all I've ever had 
that yesterday is a done deal - gone forever 
that tomorrow is, at best, a theory, 
therefore ...

I go forth today thankful 
for all the good things the creator gives
that deserve my thoughtful appreciation 
this very moment.
