what are you afraid of?
what's holding you back?
is it you?
standing at the entrance
refusing to go in
wandering in the last of the light
a storm is coming
nothing to let go of
still, not letting go
binding a rope from the branches and the leaves
tying my limbs to the tallest pines
branch by branch
leaf by leaf
to live in this forest forever

waking up from a deep, deep sleep
vivid dreams of colors I’ve never seen before
remembering footsteps on the other side of a river
looking down at the earth
begging it to keep hold
I’m at a cave in a forest
I can feel the earth with all my bones
I can feel the trees fall away
and the rope I wrought dissolve
as I close my eyes
life comes to everyone


from Lighthearted, released August 21, 2020
