From the star the finger pointed

From the star the finger pointed.

Light or lightning leapt the chasm and new life sparked to heartbeat. Energy in the bellied seed became the sapling, the desert oak which stands upon red-sanded rock. Branches spread in shelter, night air now rests soft.

Journeys, arrivals, tables overturned.

And so the life of ever begins, a star, and finger pointing.

Lifeboats

Our parents are the weight in the keel of our life, slowing us down we shout, keeping you steady they say. When they are gone we can swerve, we skim faster on the tips of the waves; we can tilt our masts and fall. We hope they have left lifeboats.
