Apr 2016

As the earth rotates,
I begin to notice a change in myself
The beginning of a new light
filled with companionship and warmth,
but also a contemporary form of solidarity
that I have never been able to feel.

With this, I am content.
The chains and anchors
can no longer restrain my heart

I am free with the gentle breeze
coasting over the indigo waters
alongside the gulls and dragonflies
I am soaring with open wings
feeling the wind beneath my feathers

And with a sigh of relief,
I whisper to myself-
I am going places
