the goodness of life

these mornings
there are dragon flies and 2 little yellow butterflies
that fly over my pool when I swim

I think of Jubilee when I see them
and I remember her flighty fun

could she be in the all-around-me?

the gates of heaven are
always and everywhere?

someone said: “the goodness of life”
and I perked up,
that is what this is …

I ask for peace for myself,
silence & emptiness

not so much chatter 
and “news”
just this:

the goodness of life.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
