cycles of remembrance
do hang on me for a long time now.
I think remembrance creates trust
and trust makes wholes emerge
Do you think about trust?
These are the words she wrote me;
a story-girl making paper-planes
of words to fly like storylines.
These are the words she wrote me
to respond to the words I once wrote.
She flies back at me like a full-page mirror
that I read as my reflection.
Little to compensate except for
those storylines that lie as labyrinths
of our lives: stories within stories
where we each learn what is trust.
