Long is the bridge which connects worlds of time.
Short is the distance it takes to arrive.
We must look past the shadows
and be blinded by the light to see.
There is a point in which all things meet,
a space where the pulsing of life emerges
and all with wings soar.
Crown of flying flames,
he burns bridges in the sky
til’ feet hit the ground.
Moss, leaves, grass, and trees
share the water, sun, and soil,
beating from one heart.
Aglow in warmth,
love spreads across the mountain
in a goodnight kiss.
It’s been so long they
forgot who came first.
Outliving family after family
has its downfalls…You
learn to live on memories
of spirit, love, and laughter.
You come to depend on the
one who has stood by your side.
Time echoes through the walls
as branches stretch for one last hug.
The mountains reach for the stars
And the stars live among the heavens
Neither touches us, except perhaps our hearts
Each of us caring and sharing,
Some too much, some not enough,
All the while we’re reaching for those same stars,
And they float above us, twinkling, almost mocking us
As they burn off, shooting into the night
And they seem to be telling us to stop this reaching,
This grasping for touch, and to just do it, grab hold
And soar into the dark of night
Before it is too late
