Away message.

August 14, 2013 § 3 Comments

Just for now, set it down.

Set it down and walk away.

Don’t look back over your shoulder.

Let the miles between unspool like line off a reel.

Don’t pack it in your suitcase.

Sit on the bag, it would still be hard to close.

Too heavy to carry.

Travel light.

No one knows you where you are going.

No need to impress.

No need to push ahead of you the unweildy facade

of your day-to-day importance.

Set it down, just for now.

Expand and rise like the warm summer air.

And come down soft,

as modest as rain.

Note: I write this on a borrowed computer at a table in the Berkshires. It is blue here and cool, and I am on vacation!
