the shape shifters pt. 2

it’s so glad to meet you, she says
in beautifully chopped english
i felt it the love, excitement
the same way you thank a gift for being present
she arrives at her launch pad
getting ready for take off
coordinated arm movements
gathering energy from the air
she doesn’t need us to help build her wings
for she had her own
i walk away and talk to the trees
i come back to her launch pad. gone
where did she go?
i follow the moonlight
fantasizing, dreaming of this divine being
dancing on the moon
waiting for me to sprout wings
and meet her there
one day we’ll dance together
fly together
until then, she waits
for her long lost gift
to find its way back home
