Chance

Standard

Stone fingers reach,
bound by the ground
Rooted to life,
dreaming of white

Hope has wandered,
from up above
Wishing to touch,
starved fingertips

Tangled in trees,
carried by wind
The chance passes,
but no one grieves

Ebb and Flow

Standard

The light dances,
where water plays
Ridiculed waves,
disrupt the flow
Cruel whiplash,
unexpected woe
Changes arise,
needed or not
Without movement,
the spirit stalls
Let water play,
dance with the light
