fall together.

every crevice
tracing white
of the lonely earth;
rock and bone
entwine 

in the eyes of 
acanthine leaves
all starved in newborn 
waves; losing or death

if we never 
fall nor dream
and we sit 
on branch’s bone,

and dream’s death,
it gives us an offbeat sparrow
while we, mourning our oceans,
see the mind
that makes 
the root of madness
or rock,

we could never
fall together.

  1. I got myself a core message out of this:

    if we never
    fall nor dream

    if we never
    see the mind
    that makes
    the root of madness

    we could never
    fall together.

    I think I’ll be integrating this in the post I’m writing just now, it’s brilliant! Thanks for sharing 😊
