LIFE... Ah, Life!

by Ricardo

The beating of a tiny heart next to the breast of a mother....the emergence of a chick from it's shell....the budding of leaves during a spring day....ah, life!

The chirping of hatchlings in their nest....the cry of a old man clinging to the arm of his grandson as they walk thru the woods remembering times past and sharing a chuckle....ah,life!

The unsteady feet of a new born calf....the giddy laughter of a first date....the call to arms when our country calls us to serve....the tragedy of a fallen commrade....the joy of a childs birth....the anguish of the loss of a loved one....ah,life!

As we age we pass thru many, many avenues of life, and our hands have touched so many things, and our eyes have seen the wonders of the world....memories, memories....the first breath, the first step, the first word, the first disappointment, the first raindrop, the first snowflake, the first loss, the first love, the first death....ah,life!

I like it -- and I'm hard to please. I am used to reading while mentally re-writing others' work, but this time I wanted to change only one thing: a misspelled word.

I would like to read more of your thoughts. Thank you.

Yes, LIFE... it's good.

If its not so good, step back and view it from new eyes... look at the beauty of fall's colorful trees, the newly fallen snow, the sunshine coming from the clouds.

LIFE, Ahhhh Life!
