Stones in the hand
by Roland John Olson

I am not in this place
My heart skipping over the flat lake
Leaping on the last splash
Winging, twisting over the horizon

I am not in this place
My spirit left these outstretched arms
Drifted high into the cirrus clouds
Chilled and fell as ice crystals

I am not in this place 
My soul intertwined with yours
Blood wet, heated, the knot drawn tighter
No amount of calling my name will return me

I am not in this place
If you should stoop and pluck a flat rock
From any place and squeeze it
It is my heart, it is my soul, and it is my spirit.

I am not in this place...
But, in your hands
