5/15 May-be

there is a rock in my shoe –
but I walk on.
it isn’t enough to bother about
this minute.

finally I stop
to drink water,
and behold!
the rock in my shoe
is a pebble of gold!

now what?
surely if I had wings
I would fly home with this treasure
and leave my shoes on the hillside!

but I don’t,
thank goodness.
so I am walking again,
the little bit of gold in my pocket
and wisdom in my shoes
going home.
