Layers of letting go are landing.
Loss lingers like your scent in a room
like smoke in my hair, ashes in the wind
like stickiness and soreness.
Aching and weeping, closing like a daisy in the night.
My anchor is trailing, bowlines tangled, bow straining.
Wild waves whisper and wink.
My heart’s heavy to sink.
A wish, awash, afloat, adrift, a dream, a scheme…
Unfold in me and enfold me in you
Live in me lover – flicker and flame.
Fuel my freedom.
Home land lies behind a door that never closes, for the door is gone
Unhinged and blown away in the storm that carried me out to sea.
Leaving just a threshold.
And here I dance.
