A Task

A Task

A point is tiny

but can make a difference

After a long series of words

can make one weary

a point or a period

can be a savior

a place to pause, rest

You can try

after a long succession of tasks

to breathe deeply

have a drink of water

a moment can brighten

you are ready

for the next task

or even kiss a girl.


each day

what do you want for breakfast?
kiss and goodbye.

a goal and striving.
each day, a task
suffering and failure
define the parallel lines
living is geometry
hypothesis and proof
understanding, then, is a gift
ambition, strong, not enough
a work everyday
a search for vocabulary
like voices of laborers and refugees
what is life at the edges
a search to understand

each day is a task
a rehearsal
for the next day
a sequence
a reachable fluency
a step
to gaze at perfection
“I can’t go on.
I’ll go on.”

you live the challenges
each day, uncertainties
each day, perfection,
each day, an experience to explore
a grain of sand in the universe
with orchids and tears
