#349 of 365 – “tether”



there’s so much light that’s travelled years

inside the gravity of time


whispering through the shadows

of the past it leaves behind


there are no folded up spaces

where today can last forever


no soundless wave of ocean

where the moon is not its tether


there are no feet that walk the land

that weren’t first curled inside their mother


and no consciousness upon this earth

completely separate from another
