Victoria Series #2


Victoria Series #2

Years of growth

Cracked

Cut down

To build a bench

To idle one's time

When hiking the ravine

In a sprint

Is too alive

For these old lungs.

Plant me again

Blossom me in new soil

To grow inch by inch

Above the cliff line

And feel Heaven

On the top of my head

And at the heart of my roots

Deeper and Higher and Wider

Than I could ever dream

Sitting here

Winded.
