Now I Can See

Failures come. They clear the table,
Wipe the surface clean.
In the distance, true and stable,
Something new is seen.

What I thought could never be
Is now the only way I see.

Linked to dVerse Poetics where Mish is hosting with the theme based on a quote from the 17th century poet Mizuta Masahide: “Barn’s burnt down, now I can see the moon.”           

Also linked to dVerse Meeting the Bar. I am hosting with the theme of final couplets – any poem with a couplet at the end.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. I felt that way as a kid when I read that “Some day you will to pay for TV, and there be hundreds of channels.’

  2. So true. I think this will change us forever, not just because of the experience but because we will see things we were blind to before.


  3. Beautiful write that illustrates “when one door closes, another opens” in a lyrical way. Applause from here!
