A Life Well Lived

Lingering or sudden
too early or long overdue
when the Mystery calls
all of us must answer.

We can weep and wail
protesting our fate
burying the joy along with the body
and feeling sorry for ourselves.

Or we can celebrate
letting the innumerable memories
tie us together forever
into Eternity.

And we can hold our
lost ones in our love
looking forward and saying
This is a life well lived!

Winter Solstice

Hope hibernates

in crystal icicles

and snowy branches.



beneath the layers.

The dead of winter

is merely life

holding its breath,

While the essence of joy


in the clear night sky.
