somewhere you feel free

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
You belong with your love on your arm
You belong somewhere you feel free

Where your body is.

How your body is bound to this body,

The earth’s body.

Where your heart is.

How your heart is woven to the vine,

The lavender, the bee’s breath.

Where you memory is.

How it drips

heavy like honey

Into light and darkness.

Into love and suffering.

How you are everything at once.

How God sees you.

How you call to God

In a voice no one else understands.

How God speaks to you.

In a language

The two of you invented one night

Beneath the willow

And the stars.
