Reaching up
The sky is scarred
By too much time

Piercing branches
Scrape the beginnings
Of limitless space

All beginnings
Reach this far
No further

No wings to fly
I cannot yearn
Beyond your boughs

I must await
The last release
It is not time

About Helen

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.
