How Long Shall I Wait

How Long Shall I Wait

 

How long shall I wait

beside this small lake

 

envying the high clouds?

 

The passage my life opened

is closing soon.

 

How have I walked it?

 

I remember brushing both hands

against stone walls

 

and the Buddha’s last words

 

loosely translated:

It gets no better, strive harder.

 

-Dick Allen
