Claim Your Presence

 woman with long coat walking down middle of road towards mountains

Are you following

the dream you dreamt

before you were born

the one

that kept your ancestors

up at night?

Are you riding the waves

of the wind that rushes

through the trees

that welcomed you

into this world?

Are you humming the songs

that fluttered in the hearts

of those who loved


before you

were born?

Go out

and claim your presence

the one you’ve known

but still have years to find
