In the ebba nd flow copyIn The Ebb And Flow

In life’s constant journey
ebbing and flowing
from here to there
there are infinite possibilities
for miracles to unfold
and still I sometimes forget
in my constant looking out for the horizon
that it is here, where I am at
that miracles happen.

Sometimes I act like a fish
out of water
I gasp for air
clawing for survival
and in my frantic thrashing about
I forget
if I just sit quietly
and allow myself room to breathe
the sun and the moon and the stars
will appear
and the world will keep on turning
in the wonder of all that is
when I stop wishing for something else
and live this life I have
in this moment of possibility
unfolding within me.
