New Year’s Message from Pepper and Me: The Weight

| 7 Comments

The future comes with weight and speed – right at you –
watch and wait.

It’s not too late
to find another broken thing –

a path, a door –
a scattering –

to hope, to wonder, to create.

You’re a brand new creature
in an old, old world

with freedom’s joys –
confusion – losses – being lost –

and furies and fate –
you wrestle to the ground.

And then get up.

All told, it’s good to be a creature in the world.
Truth often lies in the middle distance –

(watch and wait)

Thank you KDS for reminding me to get up.
