Breath IV

BREATH IV

The spirit
This moment
Breathes in

And inspires

The spirit
One day
Checks out

And expires

The spirit
Meantime
Quietly watches

Whatever transpires

The spirit
Invites you
To watch it all too

  2. And you probably won’t be surprised that I love this one, Ben. I adore your 3 lines on their own (they’ve probably got a posh name in poetry, but I’m no so clued up on that kind of thing!). The poem just breathes…..

  3. Beautiful poem, Ben. Another to add to my favorites.

    The spirit
    Meantime
    Quietly watches

    The watcher, the watched, and the watching… we’re all three – as One…..

  5. If you would put on an old cape, preferably deer hide chewed soft over many, many days, found an appropriate hill, preferably rounded with what? cedar trees? the ancient Celtic conception of world tree?, and learned to chant with a bold voice that joins the timbre of the wind, wisdom would fall with gray rain on the earth and everywhere around your being blue flowers would burst into blossom. I am sure of this Ben-Methuselah-Ray, bard, Metamorphosis.
