Snow Day

I had a great idea for a poem,

A succinct nugget of insight

which summarized and symbolized

and synthesized

One of the secrets of life.


It was so profound and moving

and true at the core,

I didn’t write it down.

I knew I would remember.

I didn’t.


So, I can’t share it with you.

I can only believe it

still lives somewhere in me,

Somwhere currently incommunicado

with my conscious mind,

and that it can teach me

what I don’t remember

but need to learn.
