Dark Holes

Today there is a hole

Dark and deep

Within me.

I look over the edge

And try to see

What’s there.

Just blackness.

I am not wise enough

To see the depths.

I feel all lost

As if I am wandering

Perhaps I lost my compass

In that dark hole.


I wonder why I dropped my compass

Just at the moment I tried to see

The depths.

Maybe one should not try so hard

To see what wisdom hides,

Trusting to be led from day to day

By one whose hand is steady and

Already knows the way.
