Surprise

There is more time when one is happy…

I have been surprised by my emotions
I wish I could explain it better than that
but I can only say 
my feelings have taken me totally by surprise
they hold ransom my body
leaving me breathless
and alive
wholly revealed
I tell myself
“stay with this,
here and now.
You have no guarantee of anything;
don’t even have hope.
Just stay here
live in the surprise
the wellspring is here
in the crest of energy
that fills me”
So I stay
and am grateful for every
rise and fall
of new feeling.
