Breath

Sacred connection Made not by intervention One just needs to be

Sacred connection

Essence

Earth is crowned in gold. Heaven wears a string of pearls. Mighty trees bow down. Nature will unfold as majesty of old whirls breath into the sound.

Perceptions

IMG_0939

I do not know the weight of mud,

the way they say it sucks you down

and throws upon you what you’ve outgrown;

but I do know the weight of blood,

how it ties you to life, to love,

and to people you’ve never known.

 

I know too well the lapse of days,

the way minutes disappear into years

and the shrinking time leads my fears;

but I do not know if spirit stays

when bound to this plan, to this love

of listening to what the heart hears.

 

I do not know the flight of bird,

the arc of wing or speed of air

or if he flies without a care;

but I do know the might of word,

whether it was kind and fair

or when spoken pain was spared.

 

I do not know the stretch of trees,

if their long arms dare to hug the sun

while underground roots continually run;

but I do know the catch of please,

how you are obligated to do or be done

as if you were ever really anyone.

 

And yet I know the cost of wind,

what is lost when  breath lets go

and that which was will cease to know;

and better, I know the frost of sin

when all bitterness returns to snow.

In the cold, life and love still grow.

In The Recess

From rusted splinters of familiarity

into clouds of hesitation,

we drift, fall, and rise again.

Forever shaping life and limb,

we journey through vapors of love and loss.

Breath and time dangle in suspension.

At the moment of connection,

we live in the pause.

Truth

born before the wind

long before time ever came

it waited for us

marrow of our bones

surging through rivers of blood

in tune with each breath

words within the heart

stretching into the universe

as we become one

beneath all there is

per chance to seek and to find

one secret to all
