Who Have You Become?

Who Have You Become?

By Amba Gale

in the fall
of this second year
still in the passage
still in the migration
still moving into Stillness
still not hearing the future,
we nourish our spirit.

The ghosts of what might have been are leaving now,
to plague us no longer with their voices and their “coulda, woulda, shoulda”
and drop photos in our minds which leave us with regrets.
Let their bony fingers wave goodbye to this time of
grieving for what might have been.

Time, instead, for new words:

We can look newly at the sea the sun the moon the sky.

We can be willing
to be surprised
by who we have become,
who we are becoming.

Dancing in the water, the bright orange sun winks at me through the branches of the pine. The ceiling falling is nothing, being present to such beauty.
