Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: Lightning in a Bottle

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: Lightning in a Bottle
The being in us flies like a hawk.

It knows nothing of the ground.

But the human in us walks like

a horse and must climb over

everything. We grow by trying

to fly and suffer because we can’t.

A Question to Walk With: In conversation with a friend or loved one, discuss something you have seen with clarity though it has been hard to live out.

This is from my new book of poems in progress, The Tone in the Center of the Bell.
