(until we don’t)
we get another chance
Rain days, days of joy, tax day, birth day
to be whomever it is we opt to be.
Each day offers its own brand of awakening
lather, rinse, repeat or
get up, get out, get on with it!
We have learning days
and I know what you’re thinking, yes, poodle days too.
Days of longing
and days we sleep in tents
There are days where
Upon reflection, objects in mirrors are definitely closer than you thought they were……
Wake Up! Let’s party! Let’s feast!
Use this day ——— Choose it!
Go ahead, sparkle!
Do it right, release!
Think it through carefully ——— that’s enough!
Every day different.
No two the same.
String them together
create a colorful trajectory.
Use the momentum of your personal space-time continuum
to sling you out of your bed’s daily gravitational pull.
Be the comet in the sky that is your Day
——— a star in the universe that is this Life.
