the soma bleeds,

emotive needs

influential pleas

for blind security.


i choose to cling

to delicate vines


the raiment of giving.


a commitment,

in this conditional garden

of nurturing,

where there is a task

to complete.


a climb

from the starboard deck,

never to gaze back

toward the place i have left.


the gracious wind

to carry me,

to the only love

i will ever need.
