for kamiif my bones are branchesfor kami by schneekrahe
and my ribcage is a forest,
then you are a tiny bright bird
whose song might be small
but makes being alone
feel a little less lonely;
and, should you choose to stay,
I will shelter you
from all the storms that chase you;
I’ll give you space to spread your wings,
and you can build your nests
in all my hollow spaces.
and if you want to fly away,
don’t feel bad for needing to go.
just know that I’ll always be here
waiting to welcome you home.
