Today, Welcome



Nothing is ever perfect,

you know,

until I name it so,

& in the naming

there is a re-framing,

an uplift,

a possibility--

this is a perfect day 

come what may,

because I have named it so. 




A wise teacher said

there are 2 things in life

no one can escape,

work & pain.

I thought about this

and concluded

yes, for the most part,

this is absolutely true.

This contemplation

led me to realize how regularly

I push against work & pain--

"I'm so tired....

"I'm hurting...."

Why resist when these are inevitable?

So I try--

hello, hello, hello--

you are here everyday,

work & pain,

so, welcome, & let's have

as much fun as we can.
