Tuesday’s Chemicals, Vague Miracles

Feeling the requirement
to write about the darkest days of summer,
but this morning was bouncy.
Hands and my head floated with my music.

And I said, “I can do this,”
meaning I will survive the day.
Chemicals were right, body’s bubbles were joyous,
energy and acceptance flowed through my vessel.
wishing I could create this every day,
but puzzled, merely living a vague miracle,
waiting for the other shoe but not worried about the other shoe.

Then my boss said
that I am good
at doing all that I do
that I thought no one cared about.

I’m believing it’s the visit with the sick last night
that has sparked my day with a chance at life, and if so,
I will visit the sick every night.

      Thank you for your generous comment. These things come about accidentally, but it’s nice to have it happen.

    Scribbla said it all. It’s good to know it can happen, for all of us.

      You are very kind. The best kind of company to have in life is the kind that shares some hope. I don’t do it enough.

    Nor do I, and attribute a good day to an unexpected accident. They don’t happen often.
