Poem to Ponder: Fresh

Written by Naomi Shihab Nye on July 5, 2012

To move



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?
