Daring

The cedar branches are wet and tremble

When gathering clouds part

The tree bejeweled with diamond earring drops

How dare I choose the multi-colored cloak

The mantle of storyteller so thoroughly worn

For no one bid me to perform these scales

These wanderings in solitary reaches

To spin visions that anyone may follow

I will dare to remind sky that my words gather

And like the sun behind passing clouds

There are diamonds waiting to shine through

Go ahead, I nod, for it is true

Words are like raindrops and never owned

Only briefly inhabited, falling freely

To service well and release with joy

Aiming their marks through many lifetimes

Targeted to reinvent new mythologies

Powerful enough to dare one soul to betterment

Even if that if that one is now only my own
