Appreciate this life (for Seneca)

our search
for security
and time
in the arms
of Fortune
 
we spend
our precious hours
dissatisfied  
and  
suffering
in this world
of no promises
or guarantees
 
live simply
and
ordinary...
 
become sacred
 
cooking food
 
washing dishes
 
loving friends
 
the finite
will suddenly
become infinite
 
and  
extroadinary
