we run full out and leap into this swirl of a thing,
knowing it is limited in the physical realm,
because the worth is in the intangibles
of its nature: heart, narrative, and relationship.
so we invest ourselves in the process,
growing in experience and skill, together,
because we have felt the worth of the work
and we in some grand sense are the consequences
of the labor of those before.
then the swirl ceases and we must release
its magic to resonate in memories
while its form we deconstruct and cleanse
to allow space for new ventures and we are
the better for having dwelled and let go.
