to an oak beneath a blazing sun.

(part of "love letters to selves")

sleeping in shadows

I feel you most keenly in the early hours,

I feel you most keenly in the early hours, dozing in bed, blinds drawn,

I feel you most keenly in the early hours, dozing in bed, blinds drawn, morning sunlight trickling through the cracks to spill in bright rivulets across us;

I feel you most keenly in the early hours, dozing in bed, blinds drawn, morning sunlight trickling through the cracks to spill in bright rivulets across us; an arm thrown across our eyes.

But I also feel you in the evening,

But I also feel you in the evening, in the quiet sighing of settling dusk,

But I also feel you in the evening, in the quiet sighing of settling dusk, and in all things cool, dark, and lovely when the world is too much and too bright.

It's easy to get lost in you.

It's easy to get lost in you. The careful movements of your adept hands,

It's easy to get lost in you. The careful movements of your adept hands, the keenness of your attention,

It's easy to get lost in you. The careful movements of your adept hands, the keenness of your attention, the deliberateness of your thoughts,

It's easy to get lost in you. The careful movements of your adept hands, the keenness of your attention, the deliberateness of your thoughts, so different from mine.

I dart,

I dart, I leap,

I dart, I leap, I fly

I dart, I leap, I fly too close to the sun

I dart, I leap, I fly too close to the sun and when I fall,

I dart, I leap, I fly too close to the sun and when I fall, you are still there.

you are there, mighty and steady,

you are there, mighty and steady, to pluck me from the sky,

you are there, mighty and steady, to pluck me from the sky, to lay me down in the sanctuary of your shaded roots,

you are there, mighty and steady, to pluck me from the sky, to lay me down in the sanctuary of your shaded roots, where, safe from the sun, I sleep,

and dream of mended wings.
