Time is short

So why live under pressure?
Why demand that every moment
Be unbelievably high?
Or that every effort adds up in a way
That immediately makes sense?
Unrealistic expectations
Invite deep disappointments –
So why spend the little time you have
Brushing aside the daily flecks of wonder
In pursuit of golden gourds
At the end of elusive and potentially
Non-existent rainbows?
The time is short-
Reach as high as you can
And then once you get there
Take a deep breath
And slow down long enough to
Embrace your limits.
Then sit down
Get comfortable and
Take a long, lingering look
At the good things
Sitting readily in your lap.
