Poems of the Week

Celebrate the Journey


Who knows why life unfolds

the way it does; why we choose

one path or another, share the

way for a while or a day, then

say goodbye. there is no

predictability here, and less

control than we might wish.

But there is the quiet urging

of the heart, the knowing in

the soul, the wisdom that’s

beneath the mind, accessible

if we breathe and turn inside.


When the tide of change rolls

in we can resist or be at peace,

struggle or release. The stuff

of life may not be ours to

understand. It’s enough to

offer love, to receive the best

and worst, to embrace and

say farewell. What matters

most is to celebrate each

moment of the journey.
