Experience, explore, embrace
All that becomes
All that is taken away
A brief moment in time
A long pause as you catch your breath
A seed, a sapling, a bud, a tree
Life grows in stages
Big bursts, small movements – time passes
Never knowing where it will take us
A moment passes in the blink of an eye
Did you see it?
Capture it in your life’s photo album?
Did you feel the emotions?
Let them fill you up with life’s momentum?
Life is memories, opportunities, growth, and love

Why are we here?
What is our purpose?
What is the meaning of life?
These are the questions that have plagued humanity since the dawn of time.
With the recent passing of Stephen Hawking, one of the most world-renowned physicists, known for his enormous contributions to quantum mechanics and general relativity, one has to only look to his astounding life of physical challenges and dedication to finding the answers to these questions. It begs us to continue to look for our own answers.
This anthology is dedicated to what gives life meaning and purpose personally. On a grander scale, what is the purpose of our existence as humanity? It is both deeply personal and widely introspective; yet it is also subjective.
Various poets share their verse, prose and poetry about what they perceive to be the meaning of life. ~ Brenda-Lee Ranta
