Grand Expanse / by Caitlin Legere

Time beat down the tall trees. Water dismantled mountains and left them miles adrift, elbows near noses etcetera. The stretching world rearranged its skeleton and lifted apart what once was whole.

What is left? Much much more.

I wondered throughout. About the travel from one grain to another once bonded at a distant peak.

I was at once alone.
And yet love and earth
were everywhere around me.
