Come as you are

Shake off the silver dust of search,
the long march bathed in snowlight
and anticipation,
through the evermore of what life should feel like,
arms stretched for shooting stars
that have long expired.

Blow away the lucent petals of your quest
don’t even make a wish,
for I know a secret song,
a funny tune the old ones loved,
come as you are
imperfect and enough.
