– – –

for all the places you’ve never been

and all the people you’ve never known

for all the things you’ve never seen

and that you haven’t had for your own


for the waves that carry you to the abyss

and the broken ship that floats you home

to the shores of dreams you can’t retrieve

like the rusted words stuck in your throat


each deep breath and exhalation

every pause and condensation

of teardrops falling from clouded eyes

and all the unknown reasons


For everything you are

have been

and will always be

For every breath you take

my heart’s prayer set free


Alone I stand in a field

No one listening but the breeze

I became the precise position where

the lightning chose to strike the tree.
