Are you ready? Am I?

For the next big challenge

the unexpected loss coming

at any moment

the sudden change in circumstance

disrupting daily life

the lucky break, even

the windfall

some fortuitous happenstance.

Are you ready are we ever ready

for those events that interrupt and

forever alter Life As We Know It

and if we are if we maintain

grace and equanimity in the face

of shattering change

stretch our spines

rise to our full height

grow and expand

along with our universe

what then?

Do we get a pass for whatever

might have come next?

Or do we just move on

to the next level, each challenge

more difficult than the last?

Or somehow easier?
