A Beautiful Thing

April 5, 2016

PROMPT: Flashlight

Chocolate melting in your mouth
and splashing in puddles on rainy days.
Oh yes, life is a gorgeous thing.

The grasp of a babe’s delicate fingers
and a cool breeze on a hot summer’s day.
Oh yes, life is a meaningful thing.

A positive comment on your life’s work
and the encouraging hug of a friend.
Oh yes, life is a happy thing.

The kiss of a child’s soft, small lips
and the comfort of home.
Oh yes, life is a miraculous thing.

The stress and worry of finance
and unemployment issues.
Oh yes, life is a difficult thing.

The burden of death
and the loss of everything.
Oh yes, life is a terrible thing.

But as the sun rises every morning
and breezes shift your hair

As snow falls from the heavens
and crops continue on

A new hope takes its first breath
and you realize

Life is hard
but it’s worth it.
