Daily Living

by Jill Chan

I've been living

this day in many.

But always one

at a time.

When I plan,

it is with an eye

to disappointment.

To be graceful

in some things

is a happy encouragement.

When we are given

eternity, as a night

is eternal,

the walls open

into the vast opportunity.

When we are taken

from our disenchantments,

we may fall,

but we do it

with strangeness,

without night.
