Through the trees I find myself spinning. Spin spin spinning to a song only I can hear, and when I breathe in and skip between the roots of all those watchful trees, I can feel the cosmos in my lungs, and even though they tell me this isn’t how I should live my life, I know it is, because I’ve felt the other side. I’ve caught a glimpse of something beyond what is known, and although it’s taken so many years to understand just what that is, it’s there, calling out my name, enticing me to take a step closer. And so I spin through these woods like the madman I am, not caring how far I’ve drifted from those I used to know. Deep deep down into the rabbit hole I go, and as I do, the music grows louder and louder until it reverberates through my skull taking me to the point of no return. In that sky blue above, the sun kisses the brow of its lonesome child. It spreads its warmth upon the land, and the animals, they feel its calling and rise from the undergrowth to follow in my footsteps, and as those footsteps quicken, so do theirs, and together we slip away. Slip slip slip to a place where the hand of man can’t find us, to a place where there’s magic and love in every word. Where those who don’t believe can’t see. Closing my eyes as the paws of the animals reach out to touch me, I laugh and cry and feel like a child, and just like that, my adult shell dissolves and the child within flies through the sky like Peter Pan, and there’s nothing to fear and nothing to regret, only this one moment that spins like the planets and moons around the stars that spin spin spin through the universe in one great dance that will surely know no end.
