We have these,
whatever you might preference at the moment.
An epiphany, a catharsis,
a smack in the face in expression,
the reality of our lives.
Just when the seasons began to express
their natural beauty,
the leaves that decay to a certain brilliance,
representing death and love
all the same,
Crisp autumn breeze.
Walk outside on familiar soil,
feel the fragrance of winter’s
slow methodical drift in heavy horizon.
We know the air is changing,
Sense a sort of reminder,
What it is we desire we internalize.
The other morning, while sunlight spoke
aloud the wonder of Nature,
he too would smile and laugh and then
for life begins a journey, meant to keep stride,
whether ready to climb aboard –
offer a choice, it is not always the case.
We decide, who decides, when did everyone
and were we even a consideration,
beyond the normalcy of our lives.
Did anyone even think to imagine,
inspiration is destiny within a moral compass.
So what if you don’t know your legacy,
instead rest upon a certain faith,
the sort that maintains a beautiful smile,
we all thrive upon when entering the room.
For it is true you can save the world.
Because it is a sojourn we all must respect,
and the climate around us all,
needs the accentuate ritual of love,
Because without that handshake,
a quick smile, a silly joke,
we are all still floating an aimless travel.
It’s a short trip this trek toward mortality,
Be thankful you give us smile.
While we wait,
we seek a natural horizon,
Gives credence to the strength of His beauty.
