A Chaotic Melody (Random Journal Entry)

sunset calls the sky home
in a land where the crisp air  
of a winter that doesnít  
hurt
fills my lungs until
they beg for release;
I make them suffer  
just a little
for the sake of gluttony  
 
I can breathe again
 
somewhere between  
the habit of being  
my motherís daughter
and the responsibility  
of my sonsí mother,
I forgot how to be myself
 
my soul suspended
over the dark chasm  
of the unknown,
I swing rather delicately
from strong rope  
as voices below
threaten my balance
making their way  
to the above
 
rain lands timidly
across chilled earth,
the stillness a gift  
bestowed to my ears;
theyíve not lost  
one precious drop
 
guardian sentinels
watch vigilantly  
over my front yard;
a pair of pecan trees
to some,
but never to me  
 
I understand their sacrifice  
 
baring themselves  
before the moon,
they shed the comfort  
of the past;
stripping their limbs  
of all that was
in hopes of being worthy
of who they will be  
once their beloved  
spring returns  
 
standing between  
the gentle giants,
I honor their pledge  
with one of my own
 
I feel it all now  
 
the unrelenting pain  
of skin that never fits
quite right;
the aching sorrow
of getting it wrong  
far too often
 
~and~
 
a persistent joy
at having been here
to experience this  
complicated existence;
there is peace  
in finding grace
for all the past versions
of yourself,
and hope exists
in having a little faith  
in all of those to come  
 
wet grass under my feet,
I sink into oversaturated soil,
curling my toes into the mud
 
naked arms raised  
in praise to the new moon,  
the sentinels stand patient ~
awaiting my words  
of supplication;
teeth chattering wildly  
in chaotic melody,
I ask them to lend me
their determination
