Meanderings

.
...My God.....
It was a day to be alive.


Sunlight
bright enough to illuminate
the corners of your soul.

Air
that penetrated
to the bottom of your lungs

a breeze
... to bring
the rustle of the leaves
and the twitter of birds
and scratching of squirrels...

into focus.


you could feel
the pulse of the earth
beneath your feet
as it leads...

ever deeper...
into the euphoria
of just being

it is.........

almost


...enough

Ok Guys..........My head is going to explode. But thank you. The credit goes to the one who created that perfect moment in time, and allowed me to experience it. Rare......rare are those moments when you just absolutely like being alive.

....wait a minute....
it says, "almost enough"

as in what? There's more? Can there be more? Or is it like the question, "have you lived here all your life?"
"..Not yet..."
