make my name

make my name a cracked seed
surrendering to wet soil
in a square of sun
such tiny hope
a child could sing me to life

make my name a thread of light
pulsing between two whitebark pine
that know themselves
to live as one
we hide no rivers, that’s our love

make my name a dream spell
whispered against your sleeping spine
arched, growing bright for you
an electric hush
life flooding through you

make my name a prayer
celestial, urgent, even selfish
a way to dream beyond this moment
a talisman of joy
a manifestation

make my name a portal
to deeper breath, belief, balance
fall backwards into the arms of a stranger
find roots already intertwined
every letter is still dirt
