Fragile Brevity

Come down now, embrace

the sky-less ground, breathless clouds,

without reason. Cry

 

the moment light breaks

safety of shadow, recall

nothing without pain.

 

In this commonplace,

fragile brevity exists

joyful misery.

 

Why do we bother

naming seasons? Or a self?

Possessiveness breeds

 

many sorrows called

jealousy, misguided love

that create children.

 

 

In kindergarten,

a bird sang daily until

a classmate killed it.

 

Many winters passed

since then, I wondered often

how cruelty starts.

 

At what age do clouds

lose magic and we forget

that the sky exists?

 

Why not celebrate, 

soon to be forgotten? Live, 

now, embrace what is.

Happy Birthday, Ronovan! 🙂
