the shift

there's been a shift
it was much desired yet somewhat unexpected
like the way love comes in
the same way it goes out
i wish i could explain it but it's certain this shift
a delicate stream
ripples away from the undercurrent
at the end of the waterfall
that freefalling spinning and swirling
and i'm in the safe zone now
i am drifting
waving at the monkey
who's swinging from the trees on the shore
he's been rooting for me
grinning all goofily
someday i'll join him again
climbing trees
