Each day so filed with detail
We ignore or get derailed,
To suffer needlessly,

So important
That we learn from our encounters,
From each circumstance –
Taken as a glimpse, a glance,
The dance of life.

Life skill, empirical,
Exposure to, involvement in:
Plain practical
Yet philosophical.

‘Experience’ itself a word whose origin
Is Latin,’meaning ‘try’, as in
‘Experiment’ and ‘expert’.
Life is short and full of incident.

The commonplace events
All adding up to trials and tests,
Those ordeals vested in
The media or in the flesh.
All’s come before – nothing’s fresh.

So, each encounter
Ought be met as life’s adventure,
Each a contact with the now,
To burn for, turn or not return to
Learn and earn from each – somehow.
