I Am Going To Start Living Like A Mystic
by Edward Hirsch, from Lay Back the Darkness, 2003
Today I am pulling on a green wool sweater
and walking across the park in a dusty snowfall.
The trees stand like twenty-seven prophets in a field,
each a station in a pilgrimage â€“ silent, pondering.
Blue flakes of light falling across their bodies
are the ciphers of a secret, an occultation.
I will examine their leaves as pages in a text
and consider the bookish pigeons, students of winter.
I will kneel on the track of a vanquished squirrel
and stare into a blank pond for the figure of Sophia.Â
I shall begin scouring the sky for signs
as if my whole future were constellated upon it.Â
I will walk home alone with the deep alone,
a disciple of shadows, in praise of the mysteries.
