(.......July 25) The Message - Poem by Max Reif

The cool breeze
has a message
for my skin this morning,

and the waving trees
are cheerleaders
whispering the same thing:

'You were born to be here!
On the chessboard of the world,
your every step toward Beauty
is already drowned
in Beauty. '

My skin takes in the message.
to imprint it in my cells,
that they may remember it
like refreshing water

when the hot days
come again.
