remembering

forestgirls 012

it took me so long
walking slow
from the end
of my outstretched arm
to here
where my heart beat –
folding me inside myself
with breath words and elbow crease skin
as i came
folding me small enough
to be the prayer
pressed gentle
in the rough stubble bark
of the world tree.

it took me so long
to remember again
unfolding expansive
on long thumbed creases
to be in the world anew.
