Back on the Shelf

March 23, 2009

Back on the shelf
A chapter complete
Time to start over
Time to retreat

Back in the saddle
The horse shakes his tail
Cowboy’s lost memories
Carpenter’s last nail

Back on the shelf
The book gathers dust
Time to let go
Surrender, you must

Back in the woods
A new flower’s bloom
Caught in the windlessness
Sweet, pleasant perfume

Back on the shelf
The book now complete
Let go of the sorrows
The final deceit

Back in the moment
It’s time to walk on
The sun’s new arrival
Sweet, life-giving dawn
