a window of time

 
A window of time should never be ignored
because sometimes it’s a door
to the hard road that waits
for those who are hungry to climb
in the high wild country of awake.
 
Old dog zen says
death often comes without warning
you may never find this road again.
Will you gnaw that same old bone
 
or will you now attend
to the great matter?
