Imagine the Possibilities

(from Brainstorms)

What a gift that we can begin again.

Imagine the possibilities.

I sit on the deck and listen to the birds
sing their morning song,
slightly different
from the day before.

The sun peeks its head
above the tops of trees
as the wind rattles their leaves.
And I wonder how many new cells
there are in my body today
and how many have been shed.

Imagine the possibility
of a few hundred new days,
almost the same,
yet slightly different
than the one before.
