stretch marks

are
winding roads,
proof of survival,
scars from won battles,
fresh paint on canvas,
free tattoos,
sudden lightning,
evidence of outgrowing,
poetic transformation,
stories worth telling,
the body’s way of healing,
of making space for more,
the meaning of resilience,
unfinished timelines,
backyard creeks,
cirrus clouds,
billowing smoke,
shed feathers,
scenic routes,
flyaway hairs,
wear and tear,
graffiti murals,
delicate boldness,
torn veils,
the aftermath of motion,
rips in the fabric of the universe,
a child’s cursive,
shooting stars,
the constellations
I follow home.
