Dreams that Call

Do you hear the dreams that call,
Dreams your hands still hope to find?
Stand in wonder of them all,
Pillow them within your mind.
In the shell of your old life
You could stand until you die,
But it’s time to slip away
With the hawk that rides the sky.
Onward through the wind and fire!
Push yourself, do not give up!
You will find your heart’s desire
Waiting in a brimming cup.

Eggshell from a squab (or squeaker) hatched in November, Southern Arizona

I hear you speak
waves tumble half a world away
conch’s song*

groping blindly for the notes
a squeaker escapes its shell
