Parting

in the quiet night

i wake

i skirt around the cabin

 

leaves of the earth touch my feet

but before parting one last look

all asleep

 

stars so brilliant and clear

parting insects twigs leaves stones

towards the dark wood

smell of cedar approaches

 

exhaling and exhaled.

 

My body. Weightless. Upside down.

Curious, I touch a tree.

Hard cold steel smooth.

 

A moment of pure solace.

Bliss. Wonder. Love.

Fractals of infinite Joy.

 

Blood and tears seep.

From my navel.
