I will rise with the lovely,
the streamlined ancients as they carve
the sun into its place,
and shadows shrug their wisps
as needle trees displace
the daggers that I see;

despite
what I may be, I know
that light’s
the only constant foe
to darkness –

so I stand.
I choose my fate
with arrow-spear in hand,
with needles falling
like the rain.

I will rise with the lovely
boughs
and float with the leaves.
Fall — and not be undone,

simply awed by the age of life,
for I am young.

Emma Dumitra.
