A FLASH IN THE DARK
(11/16/17)

today
is what
we have

we are blessed
to have
this much

if this day
is all
that we get

our grace
is quite more
than we
deserve

despite
any pain

any persecution

any longing
for something
that we perceive
to be better

being alive
to sense
such things
is amazing

our existence
extraordinary

we forget
so easily
the cosmic
impossibility
of our births

the miracle
of each
and every
breath

we overlook
our uniqueness
in the universe

or maybe
that's only
me
