Long Horizons

I long for long horizons
for the epiphany
which will rise like a phoenix
or a winter rook into blue sky
from splintered fragments
lost memories,
unfounded frustrations.

I long for the freedom
of the trees
through the seasons
through the stages
of the moon.

The trees whose
freedom
is not contingent
upon moving
from place to place
upon pulling up roots
upon changing direction.

The trees whose
freedom
blossoms instead
from commitment
to stillness, silence
and forbearance.

I long for the freedom
which makes me whole.
