probability

SAM_1081this light
that reaches through leaves
to touch warmth of sun on skin
light that has traveled
the far away sky of winter
has it known me before
did i drift embryonic
stardust tadpole mermaid child
through mothers and grandmothers
twisting dna stands on nimble fingers
making thread to weave this living whole
learning the beat of a new heart
and a new one again
until these threads have pulled taut
through time
and a grandmother breathes a story to life
on the wall of a cave still in darkness.
