Arms opened wide

What cares shall I dance

What veils shall I shed

In celebration

In the marketplace

Weeping my joy of loss

Learning to breathe again

To dance tiptoe on the banister

To flow through breezes on the porch

To stand out stretched in the light
To lie naked in warm sand
Squeezing ancient mountains in my hand
Awaiting welcome rain
From across the lake
