with one leg
from one stone to another, suspended above moving water.
Tempted to feel fear as I prepare to
I have been on this stone for a little while
I remember when I first stepped on it.
All was new
my mind a wide-eyed infant in a new place.
Learning to be me far away from my loves.
I have just a little bit longer on it.
To cherish those whom I have come to love.
To enjoy that which I have come to desire.
