It Takes A Celebration


It takes a celebration,
Everyday!
After one graduates,
With a determination to appreciate...
The value of a life lived.

With an erasing done of fear,
That separates an acknowledgement...
When a giving to take,
Does not mean heartbreak is a pre-requisite...
To usher one over the threshold to experience happiness.

Experiencing and going through circumstances,
With chances...
Sometimes may produce mistakes,
That awakens comprehension.
And understanding somehow clicks,
Without it being mentioned.

It takes a celebration,
Everyday!
After one graduates,
With a determination to appreciate...
The value of a life lived.

And this activity comes...
With no time to sit.
As if to nourish...
The flourishing of wisdom.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
