Satisfied

By Lorraine Moore

I am satisfied
to feel rain
sprinkling on my eyes
cool refreshing water
I tip my head back
satisfied
I am alive.

I am satisfied
to dance
my feet flit and twirl
in time to
the magical music
satisfied
I am alive.

I am satisfied
to laugh
bubbles rise from within
tiny wrinkles
crease my mouth
satisfied
I am alive.

I am satisfied
to sing
a solo, duet who cares
words tumble
from my mouth
satisfied
I throw my arms in the air.

Yes, it’s wonderful
to be alive.

On a shimmering blue, ochre, and green background, native Australian animals play underneath a floating haze of blue droplets
