a trajectory

cut the umbilical cord

float free from the water cave
that was safe with warm orange light
safe from the air of a heated world

then it's our turn
to bring in more fire
crossing over from countless lives
into this specific field
for one hour
a day
an age
to light the way
from tender, to raw to transcendental 
till we meet ourselves again
in the space between suns.
