Released With A Sigh

At times, I believe,

Those streaks in the sky

Are fragments

Released with a sigh

By towering Beings,

Now skipping nigh

The unseen layers

That cocoon

This tender world.

And I too, wait,

Could simply relinquish

That freight

Worn smooth by worry,

Set it outside the gate,

Damp with the last tears

Shed for

One who carries a burden.
