Not dawdling

by James Broughton


Original Language English

Not dawdling
not doubting
intrepid all the way
walk toward clarity
with sharp eye
With sharpened sword
clearcut the path
to the lucent surprise
of enlightenment
At every crossroad
be prepared to bump into wonder

-- from Little Sermons of the Big Joy: Poems, by James Broughton

What to say that's not already said?

At every crossroad
be prepared to bump into wonder
