Constellation of Opportunity

Big breaks
Aren’t always what they seem.
Some of our dreams
Took us away from our roots
And now the soil that raised us
Feels strange.
Disappointments
Aren’t always as devastating
As they feel,
Our scars remind us of
Life’s fragility.
We do not live
In linear sequence,
Advancing from stage
To stage
In rapid succession,
One calculated move
After another.
We live in a
Constellation of Opportunity,
The wins
And losses
And the days when nothing happens,
The seemingly random events
Strewn across a lifetime
Like marbles on a black canvas,
Sometimes making sense
Often unanticipated
And all the time
Perpetuating each life’s trajectory
From where it began
To where it’s meant to be.
