Triumphs and Challenges

To have lived these days
is to come through
with triumphs and challenges.

Triumphs from little things—
daily changes,
pushing through,
lives touched— some closer now
some more distant.

To not lose contact
with those we don’t see
is a triumph.

To experience seasonal shifts
on daily walks
is a triumph.

To share a common experience
with an open heart and mind
is a triumph.

To know that life is worth living
even when people are dying
is a triumph.

Challenges, yes, there are many,
but today is a day to
focus on triumphs.
