Beloved
We are lost to the dirt, 
left drowning in accordion folders 
    and action plans, 
gasping for breath amidst 
the broken hearted and the profane. 
    And yet 
the answer has always lay 
with a tip of the chin, glasses gently 
gliding down and eyes cast 
    heaven bound, 
to dream of flight with Icarus 
or carry the sun on our backs with Phaeton.
You have always been there 
to remind us of our potential and our past, 
but all too often the feel
    of fingertip to thumb
returns us to the ground of our making,
separated forever by gravity.
