Icy cold drink on a blistering hot day,
Cracking open a story,
to mystery glory,
Twists and turns on the way.
Chattered conversation in hearing range,
Familiar family, comfortable exchange.
Band-aids for when the peeler strays
Crunchy salad with soft bread,
Punctuated with holidays.
A gaze held with meaning; you know.
Relationships despite skirmishes manage to grow.
Babies, eagles, and kittens,
Platypus ridiculous, even minnows and jellyfish,
Make no moment worthless.
For in treasuring each,
The soul does reach,
To wave life’s flag of joy.
