Getting Ready

Dust off the books

polish the silver

wax the old table

something is in the offing

though I can’t know what.

Scrub the tiles

straighten the pictures

fluff up the pillows

shine up your boots

pull out a ladder and

clean the windows

someone is coming oh

something is looming though

I cannot say who what how

someone’s coming now.

It’s just a feeling an inkling

a prickly sensation a hunch

a suspicion a gentle tapping

and it’s saying Get ready get

ready!  It’s on the horizon over

the hill at the brink coming in

for a landing a something 

a someone 



Better get ready.

I will.
