morning song

a song of empty
greets a soul longing
for more,
stoking familiar-
almost comforting
fears.

a blanket
of caution,
a shield
of doubt;
the wisdom
& safety
of living
without.

across the valley,
a young child’s
chest
bursts with songs
of hope.
and the birds,
and the antelope,
and the wind
join in jubilation.

the empty retreats;
love moves in.
