Poem – Here and Now

(1)

As the sun sinks
into the grey water
we watch one year
become another from
atop the cliff over
the white valley.

(2)

As we run beneath the
rising moon, the moon
becomes us and we become
light.

(3)

To the normal routine
one year has passed and
another arrived.

To the natural world,
nothing has changed as
the sun rises over the water,
birds take to the sky,
and birth and death continue.

To the human I am in this
routine and natural world,
the challenges remain, the past
is remembered, yet I have let it go
enough to not be a hindrance,
but a lesson and I vow to be better
today than I was yesterday.

I am determined to be here and now.
