surrender

the sky is grand above
flat backed to the ground.

i surrender to my imagination,
and become buried.

it is so calm up there
up there, it is so quiet,
from down here.

i can trace the journeys
of old holidays,
such golden memories,
i can see them all,
up there, from here.

it is like work never happened,
or ever even mattered,
as the dew punctures the cloth
and cools my skin.

i surrender to the weight of words,
and become buried.

let the others fret, and never rest,
this is the place i know best,
with the sky so grand above
and my whole self flat backed
to the ground,

surrendered into the arms i love,
and never to let go again.

surrender
