Rooted…

Canopies
hide the sky
shelter us
in a home
barely remembered

There is a life
in the silence
a murmur
like a dance
a safety in suspended time

We return to nature
a childhood
hide and seek
a joy
long forgotten

And we grieve
our days
lost to responsibility
when our songs
fell silent

and the sun set
upon our light
