The One Breath of God
There is but one breath,
The eternal breath of God.
It resides in that still space
That lies between
Your breath in and your breath out.
It is like dead air caught between two windows.
That moment before
A moan of ecstasy.
The welling up from the deep earth
Before wailing begins.
It is the eye of the hurricane,
Tranquil, static, exciting, threatening, challenging.
It is the seventh wave,
A space which might present someone
With a chance?
To make something different:
An intention to create,
A change, an outcome of goodness.
This breath comes not from the lungs
But from the heart.
A heart that chooses to breathe
In harmony with
The one breath of God!
