Reversal

Growth
yet in reverse
again

We leave behind
the seeds where dreams
shape ground

Holding On

With the tide
your contact tells
a story felled
in familiar tones

Carrying the one
most like you
in the vast sea,
your progeny

Watching in wonder
the power to protect,
to save,
to hold on

We marvel admiringly
the heart of a whale
Yet tear apart
many

Seeking
to hold on to their own

Walking Trail

Where there's a place
that calls my name
from distant days

Where there's us
that climbs in trees
and follows
a bee or butterfly

Few the times
we bridge from yesterday
to the walking trail ahead
holding hands

In between the days we lose
hanging on
to places
that are gone
