those astonishing moments
when the world is filled with
curiosities and possibilities –
have slowed, with age,
to dew drops that, mostly,
evaporate and disappear
into thin air
though still, upon occasion,
an extraordinary encounter
stirs my heart to dolphin leaps
and splashes: for there
is no greater cause for
hope and exaltation
than the happy promise
that shines in a new life
. . . what a glorious, exhilarating start . . .
and I am profoundly moved and excited
about the adventure of it all . . .
note: the prompt from Poetry Jam this week is “Impossibility/Possibility”.
