bridge to us and time, crossing

The Roost

span to me and time, taking
fingers stretching slow, splaying
into us somehow, given

bridge to you and draw, crossing
step to ask and smile, testing
grounding reach beyond, arching

day to us and gate, open
breath release and brow, lighting
still the fall of night, lining

stream to ebb and flow, drawing
having to and through, cleaving
shore to let these from, growing

living into next, turning
view to lead us to, lending
silvering the curve, holding.
