A few moments ago

from my booklet “words within 2018”

a few minutes ago, this thought came to me in words…
being grateful we make our life, being compassionate we make our wealth, helping others we make our success.
and i felt so good i wrote it down…
till a fear/doubt set in…was i worthy enough…
which led to a nervous laugh as i weighed the future consequences.

then laughter exploded
into a moment of pure joy
none of it mattered,
not the words, not the doubts, not the future forecast…
but the laughter echoed for several minutes
and spread like a flat pebble skipped on water
