To Gain Elevation

Birdsong opens

Buoys announce

Rudders declare

We climb or rise or clamber

The day somethings, the sun somethings

There is weather and hunger and obligation

There are memories and thieves and also folks that are pulling for us

Then ambient awareness, orientation, activity

That which, that that, when if there

You can line up the stars just right

You’ve been here before; you’ll be here again

You’re the one who will make it matter
