Everything Is Waiting For you

January 16, 2019

 

 

 

Your Greatest mistake is to act the drama

as if you were alone.  As if life

were a progressive and cunning crime

with no witness to the tie hidden

transgressions.  To feel abandoned is to deny 

the intimacy of your surroundings.  Surely,

even you, at times, have felt the grand array;

the swelling presence, and the chorus, crowding

out your solo voice.  You must note

the way the soap dish enables you, 

or the window latch grants you freedom.  

Alertness is the hidden discipline of familiarity.

The stairs are our mentor of the things

to come, the doors have always been there

to frighten you and invite you,

and the tiny speaker in the phone

is your dream ladder to divinity.

 

Put it down the weight of your aloneness and ease

into the conversation.  The kettle is singing

even as it pours you a drink, the cooking pots

have left their arrogant aloofness and 

seen the good in you at last.  All the birds

and creatures of the world are unutterably

themselves.  Everything is waiting for you.
