Triumphs and Challenges

To have lived these days
is to come through
with triumphs and challenges.

Triumphs from little things —
daily changes,
pushing through, 

lives touched —
some closer now
some more distant.

To not lose contact
with those we don’t see
is a triumph.

To experience seasonal shifts
on daily walks
is a triumph.

To share common experience
with open heart and open mind
is a triumph.

To know that life is worth living
even when people are dying
is a triumph.

Challenges, yes, there are many,
but today is a day
to focus on triumphs.
