of untangling the mass of knots from the past
and free at last from their blinding bind
now in time with new tying skills worth trying.
A knot new direction a collective directive
introspective results creating new perspective
untwisted and sifted through what was salvageable
a bit less unstable now slightly more manageable.
Still able to manage our fumbling fingers
grabbing what lingers after clearing the clutter
and asking the questions that really do matter
while finding the answers to prior not latter.
Intent in the present grasping the heart strings
apprehensive a bit of these unique beginnings
experiencing the twinges of recent memories
stemming from lessons well learned it seems.
We take up the effortless task at hand
and at last we find that we understand
the rabbit runs round the tree down through the hole
and it looks like we’ve found a knot that should hold.
