From the collection:


by David Tensen

it's the cracks

on the road to wholeness

you have to watch for

the novice avoids them,

scuttling with speed

across the bitumen

hoping to reach

a promised land

without tripping

but the wise slow down

knowing the road

has no end

the wise have learnt

the cracks are

the way forward

going down

into the narrows

where seeds fall
