I cannot walk far distances…
Or carry heavy things,
Nor stand for great lengths of time
Nor do many seemingly useful things in this world,
Yet… I fall into moments of bliss.
I am quite mathematically challenged,
and somewhat awkward at public speaking,
LOL…unaccustomed as I am,
Oh but, I do love to cook!
Sometimes, if I am lucky,
I can paint or sculpt or even write,
As if on a cloud,
And float nebulously…on a pure moment of joy!
One clear day, I found I could turn my life around,
By listening to that still, sweet voice within,
Further tumbling, stumbling…
Into a moment sublime.
I believe we are here for a reason,
It’s not ours to understand ,
We are all scribbling a line to eternity
Made to soar, when our soul is alight!
