Within – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Reflection – RDP Sunday

“We had the experience but missed the meaning.”  T.S. Eliot



Below the ripples of my inner pool
lies my self unseen
who collects moments of importance,
things experienced and things known
for a rainy day,
days when shadow comes out to play
needing a friend,
wanting to talk,
hoping for some direction,
and as I inwardly
hear movements in this deep,
I begin to see a way
to recollect and reconcile,
teasing a way forward
within myself.
