~ Advent-your ~

        Life itself is
        An adventure.
        Living it from day to day,
        An ordinary life
        In an extraordinary way.

        It's your advent...
        Coming or arrival.
        Living life to gain 
        Its sustenance;
        And not just
        For survival.
        Taking advantage 
        Of each daily venture,
        Hence the word ad-venture.
        It's the mission of each soul
        To embrace the road of life
        For the wonder of the journey,
        And worry little about the goal.

         Soaring thru the air
        Of sunlit blue experience,
        We rise and fall,
        Gliding from day to day
        On the currents of
        Our Creator's call.

        Knowing there will 
        Always be change,
        And accepting it
        Without regarding
        It strange.

        This poem is but
        A bread crumb on
        My adventure trail.
        Searching, finding,
        Not expecting each day
        To find the holy Grail.

What an excellent poem about this adventure we call life. I fell out of a tree today and I swear it was one of the best parts of my day. Life is a journey and I don't know where mine is taking me but I am glad to be back off of the muddled trail and able to find the trees I can fall out of again. It is great to be able to enjoy the beauty again clearly. I know it is no coincidence I came across another "bread crumb" of yours today.
