EXPIRED


Day 11. NaPoWriMo. 11 April 2022

EXPIRED

*

What has expired

dreams to be returned

to where renewal takes it to be reborn

End of life takes rest in the eternal fecundity

of creations rich soil made of earth and sky

water and breath

bird and worm

rock and shell

mind and heart

ashes to ashes

love into darkness and lightness

*

What has expired

decays in the keeping

shadows the belly of truth

Keeps the heart on hold

Clouds the mindscapes

Whispers, please surrender me

Give me back to the elements

*

What has expired

asks to be let go of

emptied by its uselessness

void of what gave it purpose

tired of clinging to nothing

laid on the altar to be received

waiting to be chosen

waiting to be released

waiting to return to nothingness

to gather again in the everything

*
