while trailing along in the endless wind.

I roll the dice one last time
spinning unwritten adventures and airport codes together
In an unmarked envelope waits

searches for stitches of redemption
to create meaning in midair.
I am watching next to the almond tree
waiting in stillness,
knowing time breathes patience on me
