There is exulted exhilaration,
Such as the U.S. Olympic hockey team,
Winning the 1980 gold medal; or,
Jack Nicklaus winning the Masters in 1986.
Then, there’s the higher plane of existence;
Where our family resides.
Our marriage is there, too; and,
So, too, our friends.
Life lived, and experienced,
In a sustained state of near perfection;
In its essence.
Life is a gift, to every humble soul;
A blessing, beyond words;
More mysterious than heaven, earth and the oceans.
One of life’s sustaining potions.
