A Leelanau Reminder


"Morning On The Dunes" by Owen Weber


I must remind myself ...

That the Universe

Owes me

Nothing.

Not contentment,

Good fortune,

Health,

Nor the beauty of

A Leelanau sunrise.

And yet, 

These things ...

Have been freely given

To me.

Along with some misfortune, 

Yes.

But the misfortune 

Is only known ...

By all the good things,

Freely given me,

That surround it.
