11/ 20, Your Birthday

Somebody left a window
 open
  while we were trying
 to keep the cold out.
 And a little happy
   snuck in.
 And we noticed
   it.
 And we started to dance,
 and we actually sang,
   and then
 remembered our mouths
 were made for laughing.
   Cold hands
 were made for holding.
 And it dawned on us
 that our minds
 were made   for other things
 we hadn't even   imagined
 our minds were made up to be.

  1. The phrase “our minds were made up to be” means creation and also means having made a firm choice. A willfulness that is now challenged to think more broadly about our capacities. Our created capacities. Thank you!
