Aging Life

Living life to its fullest isn’t about

checking off thrills from a list;
It’s about being fearless in following my dreams,
courageous in accepting
that some will go unfulfilled,
and taking the time to savor
something as simple
as a cup
of tea.

Do not cling to
this small mind,
this bag of skin.

Open to the great sky
where there is no birth
and there is no death.
