I saw the rush of a bumblebee’s wings stir up the ashes of a fallen city. The exodus clear from the marks on the floor, a lily poked out his head to show his world restored.
Through the wilderness I passed to see the cattle graze on every grass. I looked to the river and saw it complete, the grizzly bear cub lie down with the calf. Yours was everything I could and could not see…the field white for harvest, the wind, the past, the present, the first time I made love to my wife, the first breathe of my brother’s newborn child. Theirs is the house without the door. And I am the carpenter that refuses to pass idly by. Theirs is the house with a hole in the roof. And I am the builder that makes it a window for the sun to shine through. Yours was everything I could and could not see…
