Just a Raindrop

Do you ever wonder
who else is out there?
Living, breathing, existing.
Who’s to assume

we’re alone here
on our planet with stars

millions of miles away
shimmering in the night?
Maybe some being

ponders the same question,
wondering if it is simply

a tiny atom or molecule
floating in the larger picture.
Maybe we’re just a raindrop

in someone else’s universe.

Crystal Ball

Imagine the future visible through a magic globe,
what is it you would wish to know?

Would peace of mind follow the facts
or would your mind be less relaxed?

Long awaited answers would fill in the blanks;
no more wondering, but would you give thanks?

Learning the future and after all is said
could strip your days of joy, filling you with dread

So living in the here and now might just be the best
instead of venturing into this mysterious quest

I don’t think I’m the only one whose mind wanders into the future,
especially in the beginning of a new year,
so this is just something fun (or not) to think about.
But for now, I’ll just take each day as it comes
and enjoy the anticipation!
