address the dream

the ivy has spread,
like veins or lines on a map,
encroaching on new territory,
leading the way.

invisible moves made it so,
to the top of the post,
and along.
the blackbird made its nest within,
and from within i hear its song.

it was warm still, late evening,
i was solitary,
alone with my breathing,

i scanned the sky for signs,
for a marker to bring me meaning,
to help me address this dreaming.

hands ripe with carrot seed,
they make a new scent of me,
and like a shrew i am hidden here,
addressing the dream.

shuffling amongst the debris,
are small things,
harvesting their own belongings,
collecting and onward gathering.

content to acknowledge their place
in this thing,
i almost feel like crying, as i watch them
addressing the dream.

address the dream
