what to do when the sky is falling
(instructions from the backyard tree)
deepen the anchor of your roots.
practice breathing as collaboration.
let your wide bough arms
be a welcome place to land.
reach, and keep reaching.
higher. deeper.
stand, and keep standing,
into and through
the darkening night.
