bucket list


you fill the bucket
then you empty it
time and time again

you walk barefoot through village
basket atop head and well-balanced
curious children scurrying along
multiple guessing what must be inside

you empty the bucket
then you fill it
time and time again

you finally reach home by midday
made of mud and straw and love
all the children stopping their guessing
quietly sitting and awaiting a miracle

you fill the bucket
then you empty it
time and time again
