Shaken, not sunk

Sometimes we all need things shaken
up; the glory is in the shaking,
being sifted to the bottom
in a life of happy dregs
happiness at the top
also at the bottom
living in between
living is in the
waist of an hourglass
that little strip of space
& of time to run our sand,
to be free even while drifting
down, out of our own control—
Be the ripple and not the stuck leaf.

—Terri Guillemets
