POEM: Surprises

One day he realized
that everything is a surprise.
He was walking under a sky
blossoming with sunshine,
and he suddenly understood
that each second of life discloses things
he never expected or could have guessed.
A moment is like an entrance
to a house of revelations,
an on-the-spot surprise party
that never ends.
It’s like unwrapping a present
every second of his life,
starting right then
as he walked through a thundershower
that showed up from nowhere.
