Poem: Discovering the Kingdom

In the Spring of My Life

I knew it all!

(With no awareness

Of the coming Fall)…

 

Then Summer came

And I began to doubt

As all Life’s contradictions

Confronted and

Came out…

 

Only in the Fall

Does it all begin to make sense;

Now I can see the boundaries

And stop sitting on the fence.

 

So as the Winter of my life draws near

The occluding mists of Spring and Summer have cleared,

The Autumn fog at long last departs

And I can finally see clearly in my heart.

 

Yes, the Kingdom is within.
