For my Northport Dear Hearts❤️
I stretch my heart across the land to see if I can hold you all as you drift homeward to your corners~ far away.
I’ve made room for you now inside my ribs
where I can carry your voices
until the trees bloom again
and you return to this northern town
where we move like circus folk –
readying our spaces before the show begins again.
Short, sweet season
filled with a thousand birds gathered on a wire outside our night windows.
Quiet fills the spaces
where you all just were.
to have had this time
In your friendship.
