Unshuttered

tree bark,

the rough staccato press

of popcorn plaster

on cheek and chest.

.

the fragrance of moss 

and moist depressions

earthenware silk silt 

beneath the furry tone

of mycelium

confident of its path

despite a lack of foresight.

.

and green 

dripping from single layer 

leaflet lips 

quenched in the dusky light,

the rustle 

of keratinized flight.

an unwavering knowing –

you are living light.
