Unfetched Truths

A moment to reflect

on what we've been neglecting.

The road signs passed in favor of

speed,

direction,

of need

to get there,

or here,

but where?



Where were we going

these last few years?

Career-chasing,

shoe-lacing for a race

where the real victors

are paralyzed at the starting line.



And in the silent distance

horizon lines relax into a sunrise glow

of the instant;

Sky and ocean connected

where god stopped crying.



And I believe

these clarities are everywhere.

I believe

epiphanic songs

are just down the dial.



I believe

simple truths

remains roadside, unfetched,

every mile.
