One of These Days

by Carmen H Gray

One of these days I’ll get it right

I’ll learn to lean into the lightness of the wind

And I’ll borrow a song from the sea

I’ll set all sadness aside and I’ll mend

The hollowed out grief inside of me

One of these days I’ll not care one bit

I’ll find myself nonplussed from the fuss

Regardless of the constant lurch

And pivot turns, going backwards, thus

I’ll regenerate regardless, like a silver birch

One of these days, I’ll surprise myself

I’ll look back on it all and smile inside

I’ll peek at the front of the tapestry, whole

And get the messiness of the other side

While I hum a hymn that resides in my soul

One of these days, you’ll understand, too

One of these weeks, or months or years

You’ll glide like that red-tailed hawk in the sky

Aware of what from below appears

Seeing everything from afar and nearby
