ON REMEMBERING

Of what do I need to be reminded today?
Reminding and remembering

comes before learning.
In being reminded, we discover new
and see through;
things overlooked come to light
so we might understand and
embrace knowing.

It occurs to me that remembering
is powerfully selective.
Why do I recall this now and
that only later, as if it were
a gift recalled in the nick of time?

We tend to stay with and
live in what is
familiar and close,
though we know better
and much more.
