No such thing as tomorrow

So many world leaders telling us
that they don’t know what tomorrow will bring.

But I refuse to hear the bleakness in their words.

I tell my quietest self
that the entire world
has gone to a meditation retreat
and discovered what the Buddhists
have been saying for centuries.

There is no such thing as tomorrow.
Only a steady string
of tiny, precious experiences
that are only ever happening
right now.

My quietest self breathes deeply
and smiles.

“All I have to do is cherish each moment?”
she asks me.

And in that exquisite instant,
she does.
