Eastern Window


Walk away again
Into Being
This is our quest
To best live what is
Letting everything slide
Into Lethe
All our definitions
All we thought we were
Floats away
Under the pennies
Over closed eyes
Struggling to see
Tomorrow’s story today
We should be
Sitting quietly
In the sun
God gave us each
No more wishing
To be in better places
Questioning
How did this now
Become
We should be
Smiling in the storms
Praying to be struck
With light
To let fall
This coat of flesh
To become light
To become
What someone sees
Rising in their eastern window
Each night alone
For all the joy
For all the pain
Questioning
How did this now
Become
Struggling to see
Tomorrow’s story today
