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

__________________________________________

Today


is the first


day


 


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.
