Now and Then

A L O H A From Honolulu!

A little elation
now and then can
help you feel alive again.

Morning light
my gentle friend,
Warm my skin
night's at it's end
Thank you, light,
for waking me,
To all the joy
the day will be.

Inhale the calm,
exhale the strife,
This simple solace,
the gift of life.

Let your gratitude
smother your fear.

We define ourselves
by differences.
We defend ourselves
by tribes.
Discovering, becoming
Through loves and hates 
And all to which
we subscribe.

Till the time of reappraisal
If we're lucky to
be that smart.
We see beyond old choices
to become our truest heart.
