Meditation on a Windfall

In the distance

the upbeat music played

adding to the picturesque scenery

as the wind swayed

Alone in my thoughts

meditating on a recent windfall

resulting from a solemn event

courtesy of excessive rainfall

Friends entreated me to be wise

this gift could be a trap

evil in disguise

depending on how unwrapped

Music soothing my soul

as inspiration wanes thin

final decision made

ready to see the end

Using the windfall

to enhance life for others

making the gift a refuge

to ease the pain of those who suffer

Joining the others

soul feels the need to dance

joy returns

as my life is enhanced
