Life story

Life story

Temper and belief
           as we move through
the transparent air
           and embrace
the solitude of the self
           Our thoughts

words and deeds
           are the particulars
of this life story
           the shifting colours
of autumn winter
           and spring with their
unique silhouettes
           and time that runs
through our flesh
           and bones from
the very first tick
           of the clock

We’re here
           to love and be loved
there’s no mystery
           each of us is a new text
in the world
           born of our breath
