Such moments taken, used as a new sign.
We have seen all these signs before and now
we know how understanding hides itself
in distant places and we see it there.
So should I let it go and watch it fall?
I see it all then float away on down
the flowing river of our memories.
The water washed us clean and quenched our thirst.
And what else should we need to take on journeys
across these landscapes? Knowing it ends here
at these few stones all piled up, signifying
a pair of reaching hands that cannot touch.
