Everything I want

Posted on

Everything I want
is already here
Just step from the darkness
to the shining world beyond


Tiny hummingbirds 
come to drink from lit lanterns
fooled by the beauty
laughing, fly away


Old age has its secrets
the masks come off
and we see the day for what it is
in the land of long shadows


The sun crosses every zenith
and sets for every soul
passages can be in the minutes
or through ancient doorways.
