“I’m hoping to be astonished tomorrow

by I don’t know what

from Tomorrow in In Search of Small Gods

~ Jim Harrison

 

I’m hoping to be astonished tomorrow
by I don’t know what:
Perhaps nation will declare peace on nation
-as so often happens in my dreams
Or that guns will leave mantlepieces
-to retire to the grave…am I wishing too much?
Could it be that I’ll be serenaded by a sea of
green traffic lights as I drive in to work?
Or that quiet picking of the last threads
of my soul,,,,unravelling my innermost thoughts
-as I follow that thread to see God waiting
patiently at the end of me…

Who knows?……..
