Yes by William Stafford


It could happen any time, tornado,
earthquake, Armageddon. It could happen.
Or sunshine, love, salvation.

It could you know. That’s why we wake
and look out–no guarantees
in this life.

But some bonuses, like morning,
like right now, like noon,
like evening.

Moving on

What matters now and how will I get there now?

The greatest gift you have …. the new beginning in every second.
