written 3/31/21

i was afraid to go outside

into nature

we were so estranged

that i had begun to objectify her

as just something i used to love

a love lost in grief

collateral damage

today i reintroduced myself

and remembered

she is a woman

who has borne a million losses

and flowered again

seen a thousand sunsets

and dawned anew

absorbed the blood of a thousand generations

and birthed the next

i touched her

and she spoke to me
