I am bound by flightless wings
and a body unable to feel
the moon beneath my feet.
Child of gravity, weighted earthling,
I must wear a suit of science to walk
the lighthouse of dreams.
Butterfly teach me the ways of your cocoon,
to embrace a metamorphosis in a womb
that nurtures spirit in a body chasing death.
Weightless in a floating dreamscape
I am stardust searching for origins,
flesh and bone praying I find home.
