If life’s a game, by Britta Benson

If life’s a game

If life’s a game,

then surely,

it’s best discovered in play,


put together like the words in a poem.

Never forced into form,

by hook or by crook,

more suggested,

a seed,

watered with generosity.

Endless rounds of hiding, seeking,


Your move, a turn,

a random act of love,

and kindness to strangers.

Pack nothing but your toothbrush,

and play,


play to your heart’s content.

Britta Benson
