Why live?
Adding one to my count of days, or postponing
a feared death by another day do not inspire me.
I live to experience something new each day -
to learn something new, meet a new friend,
bring joy into someone's life,
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.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The Eye-of-the-Storm.
Surrounded by the winds and the rain,

a time for repose and contemplation.

I am with you still - I do not sleep.

of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft starts that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still in each new dawn.

I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
