Though you forgot them,
they were vows
that were made for you,

to its rightful land.

To find that voice,
you must listen.
Listen deep,
beneath the Silence.

Drop
Down
Deep.

Do you watch for the sun to rise? Are you single pointedly moving towards the exact place where the fish meet your beak? This is the way I want to awaken each day, saying hello to the wild world before…
