A poetic reflection on the first day of seminary classes, the first day of my last year at the seminary, which was yesterday...



is the first



the rest of my life


Who knows what the future may bring,

what dreams may come


Everything changes

and yet

life goes on

the planets in their courses

and this earth

our island home

remains beneath us


People will come and go

as people often do

we say goodbye

we miss them

and soon

there are new ones


we will say goodbye to them too, one day


New students and old

new faces and old


Life goes on

who knows where?


We will find out

soon enough.
