Reversals

What if the expectation is reversed
arrivals will be late in all itineraries
yesterday is still tomorrow
advancing slowly like a caravan
delayed by sand storm
spring will linger a while longer
even when summer is eager to start
one becomes used to shift
of emotions but one doesn’t have to yield
to emptiness. Love is stubborn,
spreads its wings, fly
to the beginnings of the journey,
calming the restlessness
and start all over again,
“how you do anything
is how you do everything,”
tide returns, waves return,
sharing ocean’s abundance.
