inside each of us
is a bird pearched
on the finger of a child
with a quiet searching song
that both knows and does not know
all that we both know and do not know

the coupling and uncoupling of human connections
like the cycles of water
from the cloud
to the leaf
to the ground
and back again

we are both arriving and leaving with each breath
the voice of the birdsong just
a whisper against the rain
wanting nothing more than time itself to sit still
before it needs to take flight
