We are doing nothing,

We are doing nothing s

and yet we
shout, we run through skies
like fire.  Where
do we live?
Our voices surround the trees,
our dances timeless.

We are deep,
endless, uncontained,
always and
We entwine with movements, with
stillness, with the air,

like leaves
that grow green and then
release themselves,
singing in
the wind.  We fall apart and
return completed.

We have no
surfaces, no years
to count or
give away.
We laugh like creatures with wings
scattering clear light.

Our form is
unmeasured.  We speak
in no know
tongue.  Alive,
we need no reason.  No one
can tell you our names.

we are close up 2s

NaPoWriMo has asked us to spread joy today.

    I especially love the last stanza. Strength and meaning Do not always need definition or boundaries. Beautiful.

    Spring flowers! They’re so wonderfully joyous!

    We fall apart and
    return completed.

    I think this says it all, in the most succinctly poetic and beautiful way possible.

    I am finally catching up to Day 7 – it’s taking forever, good lord. I think my brain needs more coaxing than Plant Kitty…
