Journey

Journey

Butterflies float

from my mouth

My truth

etched on  their

wings

 

Each flap

creates a new tune

ignites the road

rose blue

 

They tighten

their embrace

Lifting and

guiding me west

 

to the Pacific where

Waters wash blue

A seashell protects

my heart from view

heart beats create

ripples

 

Bouncing off each wave

Watching ocean

greet east crystal

rivers

 

a king oak

ingested the river

Rose high to kiss

the sun hello and

goodbye

Golden core

stronger

Each limb climbs higher

than  before

 

Sapphire wings flap south

where a man reached

down

he didn’t stop

the hurt

then a new normal began

 

Our guardian north star

We drink from its

light to

pollinate the world

with truth’s might
