Release the Darkness to New Lichen

But I found a way to say no 

to the wood in my house

it kept creaking

wouldn't stop talking

I found a way to say no

I need to be standing

in the warmth of the wood

that the sun made

I need to find myself dissolving

otherwise it is all otherwise

I'm lost, did I say that

I saw the frill of light today

walking on the path

could you hear the stirring

in the wood, pine needles

and the branches

was it wind or a creature  am I here or is it over

this was the first day

the nothing day

in the nothing year

it gave me courage

it gave hints of blue,

clouds, electrical

and dancing

it gave me rays

Ive never seen

shooting down

touching things

this was the first day
