Day #1


we are ride sharing
this great adventure
coasting up and down
the winding trails
spread out like
veins on a butterfly’s wing
running this way and that
laughing and dancing
until a shadow
passes over the sun
a boulder
rises from the earth–
a mountain
of insurmountable odds
blocks the path
our winged dreams halt
the end of the road
or so it seems
we look at one another
a great pause
a solemn stillness
and then I see
the twinkle in your eye
you throw your head back
and laugh into the wind
obstacles run rampant
you say
it’s all in the way one looks at it
you say
this is just a small hiccup
you say
we will not succumb
you say
as you reach for my hand
step by step
hand in hand
we climb up and up and up
until we see the face of God.

About cjpjordan

A poet, a writer, an artist, a thinker, a musician and occasionally a skeptic, when I'm not teaching or traveling, I love to read and write and play the ukelele. I'm loving life with my Little Wonder--his energy and joy for life is contagious. He makes me believe and hope again. I don't want to forget these moments that pass so quickly so I have decided to write them down for posterity and for you to enjoy.
