the shy spirit

the tea leaves a ring around the top,
the limit of its time in the cup,

where it once reached
high, and filled us
soothing, and hot,

now the sweet taste has left
and there is not one more drop.

my body sighs and stops,
relents to the crying and the sobs,

gives way beneath the sky
and the passing birds,

until sweet rolling waves,
come like flags unfurled.

this shy spirit talks to me
he takes my hand and gently shows me,
the footstep in the bracken
where he followed me,

where in good time i will lay down
eventually.

the shy spirit
