Cuckoo’s New Song

Steps Times Two

cuckoo

Sometimes that old cuckoo

refuses to sing,

aware that robbed time

can create a most

beautiful mess

Sometimes those rivers

of time flowing swiftly by

get stuck in clumsy eddies,

creating nature’s nurseries

of future plans

Sometimes, somehow

the prospect of a quiet pause

proposes a reconsideration of

each projection and each intention,

making room for a new song
