tonight: evidence

“‘It’s a question of discipline,’ the little prince told me later on. ‘When you’ve finished washing and dressing each morning, you must tend your plant.'”
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince

evidence

evidence of a life well lived
comes not in crisp white at the end of the day
and skinned knees might come into play
the requirement? what is owned, given

evidence of a life well lived
means, at times, hearts surrender to breaking
explosive or quietly from risks taken
fragility unmasked as strength awakens

evidence of a life well lived
at the end of the day, story upon story
produced in the grit
reality emerging: all this is glory
eyes narrow to focus
hands brush the dirt off
the going and the coming
the telling and the hearing
the being and the doing
a life well-lived knows this:
all of it, everything, marvelous gift
