Poetry by Robert Stone: Our past awakens us, a sonnet

Our past awakens us
- a sonnet for Lisa Comperry
How pleasant morning when our sleep is sound
and memories unstirred affirm the calm.
The loving touches, soothing words still bound
in thought when hands and lips are lost, are balm.

How grateful for the day when signs are clear
and challenges recall our old results.
The helpful guide, solution sparking sphere
of common growth defeats alluring cults.

How thankful for the sun that sets on growth
and fast increasing possibilities.
The useful hints, clear demonstrations both
encourage settling versatilities.

Our past awakens us like crowing cock
to comfort, warning, or a building block.

- Robert Stone, 23 October 2011
