Bowing Bough

The hands fail to give the mind its freedom
No it’s the mind that fails the hands
Of thoughts that are lucid and full of meaning
Offering the rational up for the weeping

Cut from the heavy bowing bough
Snapping upward rebounding
Touching the sky once again somehow
Hands or mind or hands endow

  2. Somehow we rebound
    When failures drown
    Our self-endowed renown…


  3. And every new day, we get another chance to get it, right! Lovely!
