Take me away from this night sky I’ve inhabited for so long.
Withstanding wind and all kinds of atmospheric tension.
A shout from my past scars seeping works of sap into being.
I will leave a bare branch but it is in my bark my legacy lies.
Textured hope and virtue exceeding a butterfly’s beat.
Leaving the deceptive darkness let me live through the pure spring breeze.
A two fold cycle we’ll ride until we are within each other.
Laying my roots down in your garden. I’m sorry if I’m irresponsible.
I feel like I’m dreaming. Stable and still. In silence I’ll think of you.
Trying not to upset your environment. I’ll breathe oxygen if you need it.
Will I get visiting wildlife? Maybe that will change my course. Certainty is distant.
Cold comes from the North and East in these parts. Memories will come and go.
The sun can heal your trauma. I don’t want to cause you to suffer.
Though trees bleed and leaves fall down life pushes us forward again and again.
Is it enough to share and appreciate the good things that happen?
Endings are inevitable. As the new day rolls in; I do not know what will be.
