Small stone 1-16-12

A return
can be a beginning
not a white flag
of failure
fallow ground may burrow
deeply under winter’s brittle shroud
but what you don’t see
is that it’s marinating
for a rebirth
so stop
look up
and never assume that tonight’s sunset
will repeat its brilliance

  1. WOW! Wish I had been there. I like your poem about what goes on just beneath the surface.


    Thanks much! I feel as if I’m repeating myself … and we’re only halfway through. But it’s fun.
