Title: My Nineveh

I heard a beckoning today.
“Go.”
It’s happened before, even
Yesterday and on Sunday.

Will this be my Nineveh
Or will I listen?

I went for a summer. Two months turned short
Though daunting at the time,
Looming like Fuji-san.

Two years,
What’s that?
A speck, a splatter,
a brush’s stroke
beckoning me
again.

Will this be my Nineveh
Or will I listen?

Is this my Nineveh
Or am I mistaken?

I will ask.
