some days it’s a long walk
(berg wind breath down my neck),
slow to start the journey
when i’ve forgotten that we forget.
somewhere beyond the desert
a butterfly unfurls her wings
and here at the edge of the ocean
the wind begins to sing.
through the night i hear it calling
wind creaking through sleep and dream.
this morning i wake with new feet
learn to walk with the rising sun.
did not know that i had started
until the walking had already begun.
