Adding one to my count of days, or postponing

feel the wind newly on my skin,
touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.

Take time to work.
It is the price of success.

If we fail to plan, we merely bob helplessly -

the actions we take.

and our world is our kindness and love.

is a greater gift than a steak dinner served brusquely.
