One Small Thing

Cut one silk stitch
and no longer live
in the small space of yesterday.

Let the day fall behind you
like a pebble into
a dark pond.

One step through
the gate
(see the green morning meadow)
and the path turns
a sudden corner
out of the shadow.

Let the shadow fly away
behind you
like a paper blowing
through rain.

One word spoken
into noise
(or silence)
and a new song
begins
(hear the tuning
of the instruments
in a nearby room).

Let the noise
(or the silence)
fade away
like the silence
of the sun falling
on another earth.

One small thing
begins
all things.
