thankful for another (poem)

thankful for another
driving the wrong way on a one way street
two cars
swerve
curve
screech
actuating sudden shocking urgency

up onto the curb discovering the way
away.

car spins round
combating
correcting the error
(as if i hadn’t done a thing wrong!)

the smell of
almost
and burning rubber
fills attention.

deep remorse
and love
for the family
terrorized
by my
am-ness.

still here (check)
here and another now (check)
carry on
beautiful intentional journey.

heart pounds
gratitude bounds

thankful for another day
to remember the gift of life
and the day after
the chance to take life for granted.
