Dust From Her Feet

She walks like a traveller in her home 
a once familiar thing, lost to her
And bright-eyed watches the same night sky 
that demonstrates new things to her,
orchestrating new patterns for her in the stars to find 
and paving beams of light across leaves 
that were strewn for her
by the dawn wind slaking the limbs of her own trees
for whatever thing lost that still is,
She searches the dust from her own feet 
that she's brought from another land in a dream

    Another great piece, but I would suggest removing a few "hers" they are not all needed and draw power away from the read.
