Life

Life can be concurring mountain tops
or chase new partners all non stop

Life can be greeting the morning light,
or dance in joy as the day turns to night

to chat with a friend for hours to go
to pick a wild flower - or just leave it to grow

Life is a sip of a scented tea
or a hint of a smell - of what used to be

to laugh so hard that the sky turns bright
or to miss her so much, that you cry every night

Life is a cookie, a hot yummie piece
and a hope that the good things will never cease

and oh we know - after rain comes sun
and to feel real life, put your shoes on and run

to a mountain top or the edge of the sea
to feel all alive, to feel not Me but We

Life is yours
love it
live it

  10. Dearest Eli,
    Lovely poet with a lot of life's wisdom interwoven in it.
    Yes, life can be rough at times but we always have to 'shine' as a dear friend of mine used to call it; regardless the struggles we're facing.
    There will always be calmer days, sunnier times and joys to live forward to!
    Sending you hugs,
    Mariette
