LIFE
(12/17/18)


we awake

the routine
kicks in

so quickly
in fact
that we hardly
ever realize
the miracle
of another
conscious day
of existence

we can be
forgiven

since
without knowing
the alternative

appreciating
such grace
becomes more
of an exercise
in metaphysics

meditation

faith

practices
in which
very few
are well
versed

we simply
get up

content
if the lights
come on
