We come to the icing on a cake of many layers,

A cake we have been creating for several days.

What will the icing be?

Will the icing be a peaceful sigh a picnic by the bay?

Will it be a gathering of friends, cocktails, and laughter?

Will it be a quiet time of reflection and enjoyment of being with one’s self?

As for me, it is none of these.

Yet, I look forward to the day when it will be a picnic, a gathering, and other times quiet reflection,

Someday I look forward to  all of these and communion with the Creator.
