Poem to Ponder: Fresh

Written by Naomi Shihab Nye on July 5, 2012

Fresh

By Naomi Shihab Nye 

 

To move

Cleanly.

 

Needing to be

Nowhere else.

 

Wanting nothing

From any store.

 

To lift something

You already had

 

And set it down in

A new place.

 

Awakened eye

Seeing freshly.

 

What does that do to

The old blood moving through

 

Its channels?
