reincarnation (midnight)

i. when i rain
i do not rain mildly –
i am a reckless storm,
a dribble :
far too little,
or everything all at once.

ii. a grain of sand
does little to the ground
but i am the grain of sand
and i have been washed ashore.

iii. beat your feet on the
earth in a place
for the dead.
when i am but a speck of dust,
i will be reborn into
a wise man
or a flower
and i will live forever.

i am a misfit and a wanderer, captivated by the mysteries of the universe and the secrets of humanity.
