This Far – May 31, 2011

Another poem from Time Lapse coming out later this year from Black Moss Press:

 

This Far

Buddha is that old man
ahead on the path
leaning on a cane
he doesn’t look back
nor do you catch up
the speed he travels at
is the speed of everything
no need for a clock
or set of gears or wheels
nothing but folded hands

    The world revolves around the old man, as it does around any one. That’s nice knowing, Robert.
