Can you break?

Can you bend?
Like the limb
Of a tree
Against the traveling
Air?

Can you hold?
Like a nest
To songbirds'
Precious lovelys
Yet to break free?

Can you dance?
Like water
Twisting 'round
Their stone
Partners?

Can you fight?
LIke a seed
Beneath the soil
Refusing retreat,
Battling 'till release?

Can you run?
Like a butterfly
Atop the wind
Leaving caution and memories
Behind you?

Can you love?
Like a mountain
To the skyline
Devotion with no chance
Of divorce?

Can you break?
Like a heart
That's lost it's mountain
But still feels
As big as the sky?
