Seth Jani – Poem – 6

A Grace
by Seth Jani

Now I have settled like the wheat sack
full of seeds, or the sunlight cautiously
falling, or the rain-pelts of late summer.
Longing, you will be here forever,
lodged in my mixed colors, my buckets of malcontent.
How beautiful to know my limitations.
This small self, endlessly wheeling
towards the luminous and unknown.
