An Envelope Sonnet

“There are two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other, as though everything is a miracle.”

~Albert Einstein

Every day, miracles, little and large,
come wished for and watched and for granted too,
like blankets of clouds when the sun breaks through;
this way the limits on our days enlarge.
How lovely to recover something lost;
to think of someone missed and there’s a call;
a chance, a second chance, a small windfall;
helping hands to catch the fall, a bridge crossed.
These openings are the very stuff of life—
Its impetus—like a love you find late
hope lost; not looking; when one is let go;
one date and on the way to man and wife,
as soul mates belong, believing in fate…
and the newborn heaven-sent, as we know.

Perfect in form and message, and one I needed to read. How easy it is to fall into the negative, when the positive is right before us. Thank you Helga, for making me smile.

Sweet are the little miracles of life we too often take for granted or overlook in our busy lifes. Love itself is a rare commodity that should never be taken at face value. Great write dear friend.
