Growing Up

By Karen Estrella

Growing up

in our cozy home
things still

not plants
but people
and ideas
and convictions

learning geometry proofs
and world capitals
how to
read the map of each others’ hearts

we learn scales
and f-stops
remembering the map
is not the same as the terrain

remembering that now
is not then

On the horizon
empty nests appear to take shape

Vision becomes blurred
and sharpened

as some reach forward
while others reach back

as love binds what time steals
