the body is small


Though the body is small

it takes the whole spirit to inhabit

its dimensions

for a person to be whole


to be connected to this earth

this world of winds

this horizon

so far from heaven


You've come from so far

now you must unhitch your wings

and take the sting out from

beside your shoulders


fall into this new life

with the resounding sound

of whale songs

like thunder


come on home
