Wild



You’re free now.
Go wild. 
Go wild like the starlight
rushing trillions of miles
to shine in your eyes.
Go wild like the wind 
whispering through pines
and howling through coyotes.
Go wild like the owl
listening for the beat
of the rabbit’s racing heart.

You’re free now.
Go wild.
Let the wind from your wings
lift the flock behind you.
Let the dawn wake you up
to sing.
Shout like thunder
after every lightning strike.
And keep running
like the river
to the sea.
