Summer

The stone falls upwards
through the murky weeds and startled fish.
The water beads on the leaves and heat pours from my head
I wonder how we manage to limit ourselves
as the air grows close and heavy.

It`s time to uproot; to fly outwards
earthbound no more, with the ocean beneath and above.
So many precious people linger behind,
but forward is the only upward I know.
