Potholes

I never saw it
As I passed
It’s jarring presence 
Rattled me
How did I miss
Such a void
There on the road
Perhaps distracted
I looked away
Lost contact
With the Way
So often so true
When my eyes
Look away
The deep void
Unnerves me
Yet there you are
By my side
On the path
Able somehow
To keep me
From real harm
When I find
A pothole
I never saw

Potholes
