How to Love Life

Here is how

to love life:

Hold it as tenderly 

as a mother carrying her

newborn, warm with sleep. 

Feast on it with loved ones,

with strangers

even people you don’t 

agree with. 

Let the flavors melt on your tongue. 

Make love to it

with joy and wild abandon. 

Sing it with a grand chorus

letting your soul shimmer out. 

Paint it with bright colors 

really pausing to see,

without preconceived notions. 

Dance all night with it

letting the beat

vibrate through you

making your sternum hum. 

Sit comfortably in silence 

with it

breathing deeply 

trusting that all the love

you give and receive 

shapes what we have

and share. 

We make life
