You dreamed me into life as you sang
Shaping grey mists of a time yet to be
You called me into being
Forming a feeling into flesh
You sang Life into me. Here.
A wandering child, Home again.
Shaper of bones and blood!
Dissatisfied with singular memories
You relinquished dusty anonymity
A laughing Creatrix in her creation,
Breathing now in this body.
Working my sinew, scratching my skull
Incising whorls like fingerprints
Is this a code for me to break?
Or do they awaken songs
In this sacred bundle,
Uncovering what you secreted within.
I am eager to remember.
