In the beginning we come into this space
as innocent beings fumbling around
the empty fields stretching forever.
We stare in wonder and with amazement
as to the endless possibilities
and the control we have of our life.
Then something changes and the field
begins to fill with objects and obstacles
and where there was no path, forks in the road.
How we navigate this field and
how far reaching our sphere of influence
determines the lanterns brightness when we return.
In the end, when this life becomes the next,
we become the raw materials returned to earth
only to rise and become the flowers of tomorrow.
Each day while comprising the experiences of the previous,
is itself new, and waiting for what you make of the time.
As the rain subsides
and the sky fills with birds
I am left with a fragment
of who I was yesterday.
That is to say each day
we are given the chance to change
to shed what is not needed
and keep what we are destined to be.
