Just as there is an order of time
to be observed
between the birth of something and its eventual end
there is another order
in equal merit of respect and time
extending between the end of something and a new beginning.
For those whose dreams of the new
the destruction of the old
beware that there is no expedient removal of the wreckage
and the form which it had held, badly or not
must also be buried, be mourned.
But in special awareness be that each
and every dream
is put together on a fresh slate
but to land, take root, encumbered must it become with
the eternal effort of holding ideal shape
alongside the ecstatic Ghost of history.
So, just as a seed takes its time
and show what it will be
does an end
insist on a similar patience, too
before it is understood what exactly might take its place.
