purpose

“So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”

― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie  Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

the day came when
answering was more
important than asking
while thoughtful
softened gazes peer
past the vale
gentle sun rising
over the Rio golden
parting the curtain
dawn violet light
presents another
thin space leading
touches delicate
graceful purpose
shows her face
smiles warmth
upon your face
and changes
everything.
