Precious and Finite

Beautiful thoughts from "The Clarity That Comes With Hard Times" by Margaret Renkl in the 13 April 2020 NYT, reformatted as a prose-poem:

        ... that life is precious and finite,
that we cannot know when the end is coming,
that what is beautiful and just and true
        deserves our focus far more
than what's annoying or inconvenient ...
