a change of plan

spring pear 2012

leap up
catch the ribbon tied in the highest reaches of the old oak
the ribbon that holds those years
when you had other things to do,
when you left the living to others
while you gave & toiled & wandered soulless from room to room
leap high in the air
and
catch
your
breath
