~Zero Gravity~





I


Have


Brought


Back with me


The residue of a


Taxed & anguished


 Energy~ Not all things


Should travel~ Not all


 Things should be


Carried~ Freedom comes with letting go~ A prying with


Water- splitting fossils of tired thinking~ An undulating


Persuasion into separation~ Memories stiffen the


Soul with excess weight~ I must give myself


Back to water~ Bathe in my beautiful


 Amnesia where I may find


My buoyancy~ Truth


Wades within


 The depths


Of sea


Far


From


Its own tide~


Far from its own state of


 Being~ Cradling nothing within


Weightless limbs~ Swimming in


The stardust of deep~ A liquid


Form of sky~ Euphoric


As zero gravity
