Poem


A Distant Time

Before I go
I’ll skip a stone
Rings counted in the wake

Look back and smile
Before I go
Reflections on the lake

The time has come
Beyond the fields
My journey starts today

No wish to wait
The time has come
Forthwith and underway…

A house of clouds
Above the hill
Its door propped open wide

I say my prayers
Then cross my heart
Up stairs, to step inside
