don’t unwrap that old story
the dust has settled finally
so why stir up all those bedraggled
bygones and worn-out resentments
notice instead that new seed
of a dream taking hold
inkling by inkling
in the soft light of today’s dawn
and for goodness sake
don’t squint too hard trying
to make out all the details
and detours that may arise
along the unpredictable way
don’t let fear interfere
with the mystery of how
or why things take root
and flourish in their own good time
and at their own perfect pace
bending toward the light of inspiration
and gravitating toward the realm of the infinite
surrender instead to serendipity
as you allow what you don’t even know
you don’t know to emerge and flower
