Reading Lesson

February 16, 2017

I used to worry that

when the cord between us was summarily cut

In a modern iteration of

Alexander and the

Gordian knot

Cut, not patiently unraveled 

..I thought I might have

caused the lapses in the way

You saw symbols strung together

But now I know you will be fine.

Oh careful child

Your wisdom shimmers

As you skip, rocks among them 

Trace their names

Call them back to me

Quiz me on their possible representation

You gain clarity, strength, and speed

As the once familiar forms

Begin to blur and repeat on me

I will rely on you to

Trace the shape of light

As I begin to ponder

Reading through the 

night.
