making space

Day 9

making space
for myself
carving it out
of the stone walls
I build around myself
out of protection
out of love
water wearing
tears on granite
on rose quartz
on sand
curled along
layers
woven into
the
skin

making space
for my soul
it has grown
beyond the house
travelling like summer
on a breeze through
the screen door
through
open windows
under eves
over porch steps
up cellar stairs
out over the garden
and down
the
lane

making space
to breathe
where the sky
meets the trees
find me there
among the roots
like sap rising
to budding leaves
like wind under down
lifted in flight
like morning slipping
through pine boughs
to greet
the
day

making space
to be
me
