Haikus 6: Shadows Ground

so much of these steps
I've already forgotten
when I can look back

their lives warm chaos
sifting into my two ears
finally frozen

walk below storm clouds
thunder rolls over my skin
lighting forgotten

changing ground shadows
the higher sun in the sky
every day I'm growing

the need to make lists
beneath the naming panic
air filled with algae

walking sand filled shoes
so far from the horizon
wind blowing through cloak

the walls closing in
whats not working is me
when will roof topple

every word cuts through
every stone falls where I stand
every distance gone

why shake fist at cloud
it has stopped raining they say
but we are all wet
