Short-tailed-Albatross-FlyingThe stone you carry may be heavy

Its jagged edges might rub your heart raw

But, remember please

It isn’t an albatross

It isn’t tied around your neck

There are no chains around your ankles

Linking you to that stone for all eternity

Put it down

Let it go

Roll it away

Downhill is just fine

And if it is an albatross

Ask it to teach you

How to fly

So Many Years

It took so many years
To rake the leaves together
Tasting of stone, they did – and milk
Feed me I cried
And the rain fell
Something grew
And it was mine to love
The sun sets only once
In each of our lifetimes
Leaves will dance in the wind.
