Providence

July 26, 2014

Limestone prayers
Lay the foundation for
What would never be.
Don’t misunderstand,
It wasn’t as if things had
Ended up for the best;
It was always going to
Wind down like this.

Foresight is impossible
When the future seems
All but unstable, volatile.
It might have been
Simply too much to ask
For a little providence,
Especially when it came
Down to the end.

A reddish-brown bowl,
With a grey feather and
One ruddy silver coin
Spinning around inside-
Which will lead you to
The best path?

I’ve already chosen,
And so have you.

    I can’t remember who said this but, “Providence is wiser than you…” Nice work.
