the shape of us is round
our seeds are tall
falling across the sky
We made ourselves available
to see what would become us
to know what was undone

Ever essence an old friend that

and come home again
for home can be many places

open and wonder I’m bound
to wander and companion
I will find you to breathe
to come with to stay to play
to common ground of interest
and differ enough to become
interesting explorers of the
world within and without

knowing lingering and in our
minds fingers touch the
edges of our psyche

what combining of the edges
