smells and sounds remain the same
but the flying gets heavier
the quality we need to find our ground
that healthy loneliness of nomads
here on show's the one truth that can be:
when at risk of being broken by the wind
the only way to bring a kite down
and embrace it tightly in your arms
is to open your hands and let go
a new love of earth replaces evaporation.
I shall be greeted on my return
by the suggestion of herbs over low heat
in the cleanest of homes.
To soberly begin again.
