Beyond the Rattle

Good advice? Yes? No? You tell me.

To my Children

There is more to the hour
set before you
than the warmth
of your own breath.

Reach beyond the rattle
and click of your own bones.
Consider the air disturbed
by a sparrow’s quick flight

and the rain drop,
heavy with new light,
clinging to the tired spine
of a blade of May grass,

and the aches you feel
will bite with duller teeth.
