IV. A home where stay is sewn into the corners.

V. It breathes.

VI. The foggiest of days.

VII. The warmest light, it lifts.

VIII. We traverse to the cities of silver, where the balconies kiss.

IX. Guarding the tree that stands still, waiting for us.

X. Four directions, one that leads us to the lichen, one to the mountain, third to the snow, and fourth, back to the lemons along the bay.

XI. An unpredicted tenderness.

XII. The indigo blossoms after the lightning.

XIII. A heart to garden.


XV. The ocean remembers, we will always be water.
