High

You are the dam breaking
The dawn waking
The oval leaf that drifts in and out of shadows
You are a current, unending
Vast expanse of land, humming
You are the monarch migration heading south
The swallows rising from Africa
You are a twilight, a beginning
That must die before birth
You are a scoop of earth
You are a kiss, without a mouth
A deep ravine, holding darkness
A seed, giving its all
To leave the soil behind
You are destined for the sky
You cannot recall
When last you were afraid
I cannot recall
When last you were
Anything but rising.
