Acceleration Due To Gravity

i drove 

the curvature of the earth,

mindful of the yellow lines

as they disappeared

into the circumference

of the trees,

the only future

i could see.

.

i felt the tangled roots

of the canopy,

warm rain 

on the placid skin 

of the sea,

the respiratory dance 

of water, sky, and light,

the tidal rise 

of a myriad of lives.

.

these woven threads

in a spherical tapestry,

all appeared to churn

without me,

as life collapsed into 

a moment of silence

parked on the shoulder

gripping the wheel.

.

two becoming one,

had little to do

with you and me.

in the presence 

of Infinite Gravity,

there is no need to cling.
