to be becoming

there are places of confluence
of intersection
placess of mutual support
and places
that slow growth
until we move past

and looking back
at each
as a waystation
a place
in which we were negotiating
our path

looking back
at each
as a place in which
our intentions
were forestalled
or sent
in an entirely unexpected direction

we can see
these places
as layers
that have over time
settled beneath the surface
of our experiencing

perhaps still affecting
our trajectory
our path

we are what we were
to be becoming
