Life persuades you to other places,
uprooted and thrown to the wind.
Landing… a mystery of unknown quality,
endured without a choice.
For ever hopeful I wait, bright eyed, I absorb.
Surprises unpredictable , another world promising,
new doors to open, if I choose.
Aquainting myself slowly , my heart responded
to home?…Womb – like forest held me to its breast .
I suckled willingly ,eager for sustainence,
here I found a way to balance ,redressing voids unfilled.
Nature the great healer , and many kind folk to hold my hand.
A few years of childhood , cherished , nurtured ,enriched,
a life saved , a spirit strengthened.
Balance, like the nodding great treefern suspending its weighty load,
within moist shroud .
Ruffled by mountain air caress, to release laden frond of snow surprise,
just moments before the scales were tipped , levitated and expectant of fate.
The voids are no longer empty , but are being filled
with gentle love ,unconditional and unassuming….I was blessed.
My spirit saved and still chasing the magic of my dreaming,
a forest covered mountain proffered sanctury and renewal.
Well watered youth , flourishing despite constant depletion ,
life flowed and I drank thirstily , hoarding for my unseen tomorrows
and now full circle , I am once again home….but never again,
