Be the Leaf-Stars

In memory of the great teacher John Taylor Gatto, may he rest blessed watching his seeds of wisdom grow eternal.


Be the Leaf-Stars

Masters of the in-between spaces
feathers on the currents
Descending in deliberate delicateness
Cosmic order followers
of decay and regeneration

Float between night and day
ethereal myth-makers
suspended, transitioning
in the gravity-free zone

Evoke our care
and longing
grant us a moment
to sip your exquisite
your ever-lasting
