Home

It takes me thirty-one years to see
the green heron’s shape in the shadow
of leaves, a bright spot in the sun’s softness
the tree limbs still calling the child
in my shoes to climb skywards, the nesting
hummingbirds flitting past dragonfly
also flitting past this lake is home
where my mother’s water broke with me
I revolve around this pond, as autumn swirls
in her crisp wind, as an osprey circles.

Kintsugi

The art of repairing pottery with gold.

I offer my broken body, time and time again
upon the operating table, as rapid hands shine
they pour in rare metals, trying to keep me whole
enough to hold my own water, my own blood.
