A Toast to a Meaningful Life

Giving expression to our sacred seed

Our work should’ve a meaning
not even in some grand sense,
if it should soothe souls
and bind wounds

or put some balm
on nagging aches,
a smile on a face,
a brief or long grimace
even a loaded sigh
or a quick looking away
to stem and blink away a tear.
