within reach

There

They were

Floating high

In the night air

Worlds I sought to touch

Sometimes, seeming so close

That all I needed to do

Was to stretch as far as I could

And if I closed my eyes while reaching

I could pull myself up to where they were

The

Ebbing

Of her youth

Was evident

Only to the ones

Who never knew her when

She shown like the bright dayspring

Filled with magic and hope’s promise

Emanating through and from her soul

Now and forever shining through her eyes

Vibrant reminder of who she was

A beacon of who she truly is

Her youth is never really lost

It is present in her life

In precious, subtle ways

Heard in her laughter

Felt in her hugs

When she serves

Cookies

Tea

wizard we

we are not cursed with pain

we are blessed with the chance

to learn to dance the dance

of the healer

to turn off suffering

wiith knowledge, we once knew

methods ancient, tried, true

plying the craft

codependents

It’s because trees have leaves

That we can see the wind

It’s a rather nice blend

Of purposes
