The Present.
unknown

I will be the solace of song
 1
in the deafening silence
 2
 
 
I will be the witness to your dance
 3
without the asking
 4
 
 
I will be the calm at your feet
 5
after the storms have passed
 6
 
 
I will be the gentleness you crave
 7
after you reclaim overcome the dragons in your layers
 8
 
 
I will be the water that washes your hand
 9
that held the knives
 10
 
 
I will be the consolation to your inconsolable regret
 11
and the hammer that wrecks the pedestal
 12
 
 
I will be the light in the darkness
 13
and the darkness that holds the light
 14
 
 
I will be the confidence of the strength
 15
with which you stand against every grain
 16
 
 
I will be the gaze that breaks the mirror
 17
and the coming of the echo
 18
 
 
you always wished
 19
would return
 20
 
 
I will be the resonance you will feel
 21
deep in your bones
 22
 
 
I will be the beating of your heart
 23
and the breathing of your lungs
 24
 
 
I will be all things;
 25
the water, the fire, the stone, and the stand you make
 26
 
 
This is what I leave you
 27
For when you come to understand.

Holding the crow pose
for twenty seconds;
smell of lavender,
buzz of bees.
