Period

Sometimes I stare out the window
And feel whole—
Mostly on sunny days as the air
Gets warmer and I can feel the
Earth move beneath my feet
While I walk across soggy grass
Spotting only black remnants
Of winter.
A legacy is not obligated
But it is an obligation,
So I often feel abrupt
And anti-climactic
Like a period at the end
Of a single sentence:
A common marker
Of pause,
A complete thought,
A warming sentiment, whole.
