cradle to grave

We have a finite number of days
of breaths between life
and death
the journey through space-time takes minutes
and hours
and years
through it all
we watch
out dirty windows
and closed doors
while the world rushes by in a panoply of choices
We have a finite number of days

  1. We have finite days. And, while we make sense of our thoughts and emotions begin closed doors, as we watch through dirty windows, we write. And our words can live on, to teach, and inform, and entertain, and bring comfort. That’s what we’re doing as we watch. I hope your words continue to do these things for as long as people need respite from the world that rushes by. They always work for me.
