Now that I've rooted out all of you,
your sounds fingers scents,
rooted out the face of the moon
and smack of sun
I am free, free

drinking silence and dark
no pulling, stretching, like I am taffy
for the cracking and consuming
no longer vat for endless
disappointment, need.

The underbellies of leaves
speak now -
slits of light in the withered fence
timid neglected corners,
the dog's good eye.

Fledglings nest in my brain.
Rain washes into me like
a thousand droplets of lover.

I am a rock that glints in the sun
happy with rockness
a star happy with starness
dust with dust in dust as dust.

The heavens adopt me
like an animal not its kin -
I am baptized in the
bludgeon of inner child,
that darling yes-thing.

And release is sweet
like her blood.

It's like the cleansing process of all things surrogate inside us in order to return to our sovereign selves, i.e. inner child. Wonderful poetry Julie.
