open

open
floating
up and under
your influence
on my mind
we know
how far and how
high this tree
soars
foot by foot
branch over branch
climbing towards
clear blue skies
the limit to
where we can
go instead of
home where we
can be more of
ourselves
than we have
ever been
around and around
until we see each
other and are
covered by a
blanket of stars
pulled up over
our heads so
our toes hang out
wiggling in the cool
night air
