Trips Around the Sun

I completed yet another trip around that glorious star at the center of our solar system earlier this month and with each trip all I hope is that I have learned a valuable lesson and hopefully made someone else’s trip a bit brighter.

So what are my thoughts regarding my 45th trip around?

I will revel in each new wrinkle

& take pleasure in each added pain.

I will find comfort

in the blossoming softness

of my aging form

& take refuge in what I’ve lost,

not gained.

For I am ethereal, eternal

I am the light of the moon,

the grandeur of the mountain.

I am the vastness of space

as deep as the ocean.

As I wax irrelevant in form,

I merge with pure awareness-

the infinite.

I am a blade of grass

kissed with dew,

a speck of stardust

free & unbound

I am brahman.
