In an endless sea of absolute desolation (‘endless’ & ‘infinite’ have same meaning.. so I changed to ‘absolute’)
Amidst galaxies, stars, and black holes,
A solitary pine tree clings to life –
On the edge of a death-defying precipice
Embracing the glorious sun.
Braving the fearless wind.
Welcoming the life-giving rain.
Such is the benevolence of Mother Earth.
Why then waste this precious gift of life?
With all the glorious wonders still to discover,
And purposes yet to be fulfilled
Contained in this tiny speck of life-giving sand,
Is a phenomenon – a cyclical cosmic dance
Happening each moment, within the realm of time and existence.
Be grateful; wake up and cherish life’s conscious awareness
For our mortal end is only a few breaths away.
This human manifestation of our spiritual being is a rare gift,
Celebrate life, choose to be happy, spread joy, and embrace all.
For, we are the masters of our fate and destiny.
