    affirmation

    let yes be our response
    to most any of life’s questions . . .
    not an answer as much as
    a declaration: yes to the chance,
    the hope, the opportunity,
    the near-miss, the adventure,
    the small gesture, the long shot,
    the promise, the possibility,
    the unexplainable, the failure,
    and even the grief: yes
    to love, to one another, to life
    together with arms wide open.

    Peace,
    Milton

      I am finding the small gestures becoming more and more important. Thank you for your words.
