A Finer Horizon

A  L  O  H  A !

is like climbing a tower; 
the view halfway up 
is better than the 
view from the base, 
and it steadily 
becomes  finer as
the horizon expands.”

Life can surprise you!
I think THAT's
what I really want
to tell You today.

Anything Can Happen.
We say that,
and shudder;
We hold our loved ones
closer and say a prayer
or charm.

Yes, Anything
can happen.
And that includes
unseen blessings
out of a bright blue sky-
or even BETTER:
a grey & stormy sky!

What a difference
a Day makes.

"Don't cry for the one
that left you,
the next one might 
fall for your smile."
counselled Mae West.

And she was right.
Today is a treasure,
just to exist.
And sometimes
it explodes with happiness.

That's part of Life too!
Don't discount a Serendip,
or turn away 
a Heff-a-lump.

You just might find
that lucky clover.

It could happen!

After all,
I'm wishing 
YOU
the best!
