Wise & Time

We are grounded like jasper
as our earthly eyes rise skyward
toward your descent…
but we wish to chase,
to float as clouds,
so our fingers gift the sky
and angels grasp the threads
of our red balloons…

We are in mourning like the doves,
but we are silent without song,
without reason.
As uncertainty blinds our hopes
and breathes our souls without exhale.

We are reborn as a infant cries,
a soul finds place
and as our final words birth love…

We are ascension and flight
a light in darkness and end
And we are magnetic,
drawn toward a certain spell,
beyond time and spaces unknown,

…then we chase, floating as clouds
and we all become angels
grasping at the threads of our
red balloons…
