Empty Wells

A Chapter by Ufi Auttorri ~ UfoAuthor

Patience honors the ancient wisdom.


Empty Wells

The well is empty.  Toll the bell.
Turn the handle slowly
As though the bucket were full.
Listen to the windlass creak
While the rope embraces the dusty rounds.

Lift the bucket from the dark hole
And set it on the stone surround.
Dip your fingers deep within
And pull them slowly out
Yielding not to the impatience of youth.
