the seed’s perception


my world is held
within an arc
of the sky

sometimes
almost
I do not see it
I do not feel it

but the blue above
I know
is a curving dome
that loses the horizon

I cannot touch it
though I know
that it is there

I cannot strike it
with the stone I throw
propelled with all the wrath
an arm can hurl

one day
I’m going to break out

one day
I swear that I’ll be free
beyond the blue

beyond the arc

out there
I will encounter
no restrictions
no constraints
on me
