-:- a five year breath -:-
is all i need
to keep living,
          to walk this flawed planet.
the whirling clouds stretch
          across golden folds of blazing light.
          though they may — the seasons change
from dust to dirt
and life to leaf —
          the snow falls — heavens sleep.
when birthed anew, wings will rise and
          i’ll throw a gaze
          with cosmic eyes
to forever seal a time
when man was almost wise.
          beauty was all abound
from sea to sky and earth to fire
          —   in the forge all is iron.
          cast and cooled, set and placed,
we are the wind chimes
in our ever breathing mist.
