|The sand timer
A new beginning is a flame,
A flame of resonance and regard.
To erase feelings that are desultory and marred
and thoughts that are burnt and charred.
What images do you project on your card?
A tree of life that brings air
Who can we ask when there’s no one there?
Will you step into the open, if you dare?
Climbing the wall for peace,
To let go of the existential panic,
The top of the wall is the new start,
Ready to carve your work of art.
The sands of time drop,
The grain running through the glass,
When will it stop?
Turned round and starting from the top.
Start afresh, make a clean slate
Only now is the current rate.
Be present, be mindful.
Patience is the ultimate cool.
