A life lived has so much breath to it.


I dedicate this poem to Norb and Jude.

norb and jude

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A life lived has so much breath to it

Millions of gasps of surprise

The pants of  anxiety

The hold on of disbelief

The hunger heave of desire

The whisper of holding silence

Bellows of breath for cheer

Moans of air between sobs

A life lived has so much breathing

with out much notice to how

the inhales and exhales are

moved by our moments crowded

by another moment of joy of

sorrow, of silence, of love, in the

unexpected expanse of engaging life

as it comes and goes like breathing

in and out. Breathing in and out.

Till the last breath struggles out

and lays it wisp on the bare shoulder

of the one you love, a kiss good bye.

A life lived has so much breath to it.

  2. you’re welcome Jude. It’s more of the joy of sharing breath with other, inhaling each other and feeling that breath to the end. Lucky you.
