“I was ready to be sought
         out by those who did
         not ask,
   to be found by those who
         did not seek me.”  Isaiah 65:1a

are the answer
to the questions
which wake us up
in the middle of the night,
and follow us
like a stray kitten 
each day;
are the fork
in the road we
always choose
not to take;
are the home
we pass by
in our rush to
finish each to-day list,
until we pause and
notice the rocker on the porch
has our name on it.
