Fragile

Gentle breeze on your cheeks
Leaves fluttering in the wind

Chipmunks scampering amongst the flowers
The flowers themselves

life

Seeing your parents celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary
Looking into the eyes of the one you love

A brisk walk lost in thought
Being your own self

is

Reuniting with old friends
Laughing with new

Waking up each morning free and healthy
Going to bed happy and fed

fragile

Appreciate what is to be appreciated
Change what is not
