A New Start

.

 

This morning my books were all in order

The ancient ones and the new, all in a line

Pages marked, paragraphs highlighted

I had left them tired and scattered, it seemed

But now I remembered, after long rest, every question

And all of the lines that had diverged now came together

All the thought that the old texts had raised

And I remembered songs and poems and lines from movies

That did what words can do, pointing to some greater truth

Some greater beauty, some greater hope.
