Today, I saw something beautiful.
People gathered, happily seeing each other.
There were no expectations.
No regrets. There was only now.
And now was to be lived.
Some were young. Some, old.
Who knew which?
They spoke the same joys, fears.
Skipped through the same grass.
Petted the same puppies.
Picked the same flowers.
Loved the same loves.
Spontaneity stole the show.
Gaps were bridged.
Differences honored, accepted.
Each took a hand.
All came home.
