no looking back

 

20160329_180051

there was a time in the world
when we heaved with
the breath of the living,
when rivers rushed
deep in our veins
and our quickening pulse
crashed the high tide shore.

a time when sleep was for dreams
that grew the forest, sang the stars
not a stale grey death of unawake.
forgetting was impossible
because each breath
remembered us.

there is time in this world
to breathe a new remembering
re-form ourselves
of sinew synapse and light
to dance at the edge of the infinite
to live the world anew.
