            Grateful for Impermanence 
        
Four of us 
Welcome the trail— 
Last year
it was only three 
Grateful for impermanence

Four of us gather 
in the backyard—
“Family-friendly football”
my son smiles…
We form teams—
This year we have
an even number
Grateful for impermanence

We gather around the 
Table…not three 
but four places set 
Cups and forks raised
Cheers 
to a meal together
Grateful for impermanence

A fact 
I wrap my arms around 
Embrace with joy 
Impermanence 
Makes everything 
possible

“It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words, "And this too, shall pass away." How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!”
Abraham Lincoln
