Lizards in the Leaves

Rustlings in the green....imagination, art, whimsy

you can always start over

"...Full, with everything
possible and intransient,
the slow pale oracle
of my longing
revealed something at last,
you can always
start over, levitating
from the edge
of a shadow,
as pure and whole
as this."

 - from Moon, a poem by Zann Carter [1987]

That is how I feel, after bearing witness to my brother's last breath, after journeying back to the Smoky Mountains to scatter his ashes.
I feel like I am in a new land, starting over.
I have little idea of where I might be going in this new place, so I'm just sitting here awhile.

Breathing in
and out.
