Covenant

the soma bleeds,

emotive needs

influential pleas

for blind security.

.

i choose to cling

to delicate vines

embroidering

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.
