A Single Breath

With each inhalation of breath I become one,
one mind,
one spirit,
one body,
and in one breath,
I feel the balance of the universe
revealed inside me.

I am in the air,
whispering through the trees,
bringing the beauty of creation closer,
I am the wind,
changing all living things,
in a single breath.

I am the water,
quenching the thirst for life,
flowing rivers and raging seas,
I am a raindrop,
in a destructive tidal wave.

I am the fire,
burning inside the Earth’s core,
the phoenix reborn in the flame,
I am the candle,
illuminating the sun’s rays.

And I am the Dragon,
giver of life, bringer of death,
you call for my return,
my child,
I never left you.

I am a freelance writer and neo-formalist poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project.
