From a bench in the sky
A kiss from the eternal river below
A moment of clarity

Life continues with
     or without me
A choice to be present
     or to be stale
Grateful retrospectively
Appreciative blood-pumping post contentedness

But where was I?
Closing doors on the open sky
Ignoring kisses of the river

But alive

Realisation of independence
     yet connectivity
Dependency, energy-bonding life

Seemingly apart
Ultimately one
