Now is Grateful

Light filters morning
through windows and key holes
dogs breathe heavy,
another morning nap
cat searches,
a feathered foe dancing
behind curtains and shade
and I
stop typing
a breadth width of time
gratitude settling into
coffee mug
awakening my soul
to now,
to home.

Pass this life

Pass this life
in the breadth of thought
and still dream for
more to come
Simplest notion
of immortality
raises hopes
and longings for
a now not yet come;
and wonder I
in this course
road traversed
and folly?
do they fail to see
the now that is
leaving life
frail and brittle?
