Life’s Punctuation

Life’s Punctuation

 (click: hear the voice behind the words)

Each life has its own point to it.
An ending. 

Each day has its own ending.
A chapter completed with a flourish,
or a simple stroke. 

Each moment in time
punctuated on the page of a journal:
a period.
a question mark?
a dash of anticipation – 

When death called
it was said of him
that he finished each day –
accentuated each moment –
completed his life’s statement –
with an exclamation point!
