new land

over the sea of clouds
we travelled unknowing
unknown

our lives would change
this was all
we could count on

and time
marching on our shoulders
like a leaden weight
reminding us our time
is marked
and marking yet

we watch the hovering
hummingbird
each drink
his life-blood’s link

the wings
feather propellers
ever moving
never still

new land
new light
new thrill

no guarantees
but setting sun
and rising moon

and seasons
falling leaves
and floating snow
and spring’s surprise
to make us hanker for the sun

we thankful sit
with hands together
clasped in gratitude
together again
together for good
together for whatever
comes
each calm dark night
each rising of the morning globe

hands together
clasped in gratitude
together again
together for good
together for whatever
comes

new land
