Thursday Verses - To My Elder Self and All

"Look at me now," I say, "just look and listen".
I have no wisdom to give you, no insights
into your journey, the shapes and colours
of your myriad lives, their twists and their
turns, their themed and glossy fragrance.

Look, here are my hands beseeching you,
cupped, I hold them out like a benediction,
resting easy within, golden leaves and fragments
of the clearest autumn skies at sunrise,
blue as a starling's egg and mole dappled,

tiny ripples and perfect reflections all rounded
in a wooded blessing of the finest kind.
Drink from these hands, and be content,
oh friends, let us travel on together starting
here and now, light of heart and singing as
the birds sing, branch to branch at dawn.

Cate Kerr (Me)
