in the turn of moments…

how and why DO matter:
our intentions, goals, and dreams —

life is lived
in the turn of moments,
where we reach past the boundaries
of mere existence,
striving, self-consciously
both to become and to
become aware

when the dance is over
it isn’t the exact steps
and gestures we will remember,
but the exhilaration, the joy —
how, as a gift back to the music,
we became the music —

we are all born explorers:
designed for great adventures,
daring escapes, and
legendary romance

early circumstances press on us
like molds, and we
can eventually either keep
those shapes or no —

we can let today’s sunlight become
today’s fuel, or

tomorrow’s regrets
