Home at First Sight

And somehow you are both 

all of me 

and something all your own

you are a familiar forest, 

yet your trees remain unknown 

and the soil that grounds you, 

has me too, 

tethered here to earth

for we have always been connected

I the south, and you the north.

and though you span a planet wide

and I the same as you, 

our souls remain 

bordered as one 

connected through and through.

So we speak with clouds and waters, 

sending signals through the breeze

— swimming in different bodies

connected          by the seas.
