Life

floats nine months,

then makes its way

crushed for thirty long hours,

squeezed from under the heart of things

past the blood red fire, riding the drumbeat

of love into shining

light.

(For Saige, Martina, & Jared)

From my backyard swing

I see you on your journey

flying high above me.

What joy or sadness will you bring

in a public celebration

when you arrive at your destination?
