The meaning of life

My friend,

I wish I could

tell you

the meaning of life.


I wish I could

tell you

what all the

sages and ponderers,

mystics and religious types

have dribbled

over countless eons

of fruity effort,

and written

so impressively and stylishly

in dusty books

of profound importance.


But alas

all I can say

on this happy

sunny day

is look

at the sky

and see its blue,

drink in

its vivid light

and wonder

in this moment

about the uniqueness

of me and you

as two strange little mites

wondering on

this planet of flight.


Then have

a laugh and say,

“All I wish for

is today”,

sitting here

under a tree

with the sun

and sky

shining down

on me.
