Numbers

  

I have never been good

at numbers. 

Some people can figure things

in their head. 

For me, pencil to paper is

a necessity. 

So much of adult life hangs

on numbers

loansinterestforecastsbudget salarymortgagetaxesaccounts

And there are numbers that stand for centuries years months days

minutes. 

I’ve skated through parts of life

on thin understanding 

but I am learning that

you can have a scores of years 

and only a little living. 

And you can live a lifetime

in mere months. 

Gratitude 

makes the difference.
