Embrace Life

by Joan E.

flow with life
engage its currents
draw energy from winds
and waves' surges
look up at sequoias
marvel at their strength
and endurance
feel the sky's vastness
plus the stars' magic
hear the seasons' rhythms
smell morning's fresh-made air
do not distance yourself
be enveloped


We are in Palo Alto in Northern California for a Stanford University reunion--my husband's 45th. I've had some time to reflect on the life well lived!

Angelheart's animation "The Gift of Life" seemed to parallel my thoughts perfectly.
