too many storm clouds at my feet

too much thunder- lightning and turmoil

swept by the wind

i need the earth

through cold dirt and rock- roots will go down

to find my grandfather’s sound

i’ll grow a sturdy trunk- with branches to hold the light

tired of taking flight- tired of kissing the wind

ephemeral erudition

food without taste

love without fear

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
