evolutions









                                 — Inspired by "The Avowal" by Denise Levertov



vines once heavy with purpled laughter
now huddle 'neath wind's fist, 
trembling 

small, still things will reach for light 
whenever courage manifests itself, 
made tender by innocence 
as fleeting as birds

notions erupt into epiphanies

becoming sounds (easier than being),  
as dusk descends
