A Star Falling Upon My Intricate Nest

I went for a visit

in a forest of old cement

I was led on top of an ancient house

only to find landing on a tree

* * *

It has branches

growing into untouchable dimensions

It has breath respiring into the cold Covid night

into the invisible gaps of time

* * *

I was perching on top of the tree

listening to the silent murmurs of the stardust

whispering the secrets of life

onto the willing skin

* * *

I, naked like a new born, gazed into the sky

I felt warm but fresh

my veins of blood and mind

like sturdy roots extending to intertwine with the tree

like two giant hands reaching out

to catch a star

falling upon my intricate nest.
