Not being in control
Makes beautiful surprises
And unwanted ends
In fact we are not in contol
Of even the mundane.
Each day is set in motion
By a Force no human hand can tame.
Today came to us without us willing it to do so.
Each day escapes us.
No one has ever caught yesterday by the tail
Or successfully negotiated for a little bit more.*
Today will leave us no matter how tightly we to cling to it.

We never really did know how
To make something out of nothing.
It all came to us as a gift.

*Except for the biblical account in Joshua 10 who prayed for the sun to stand still and it did.
