An Alternate Reality

If I could only keep 3 things

If Armageddon happened
and I could only keep 3 things—

I would keep my sense of humor
because it would help
to get me through the hard times ahead.

I would keep my compassion
because a care-less world
is no place to live.

And I would keep an open mind
awake to wonder and possibilities.

harbingers of hope (in awkward haiku)

stuck in a black hole
hard to see the light of day
so full of empty

needing renewal
promise of a better way
seeking space to grow

lost on my journey
can I find my way again
will I know the joy

birds in my backyard
know the light and see the joy
I want to be them
