i Breathe

i Listen

the pores of my skin open up
like a baby bird Reaching for nourishment
absorbing the freshness
of It all
all of this great gift

it is just me
and the seagull
the only two Moving
in my world of dawn
no one else dares
to Brave the chilling waves

me and the seagull
we Know.
we know there is nothing greater than

this huge silence
that is all But silent

she looks at me
and our eyes exchange Information
of all the years past

the lesson Most worth our silence
(that is not a silence At All)

envelops us.

secretes through our skin And lifts to the sky.

breaks Through our commonness –

makes our connection Divine.

the air buzzes – rings – screams – with the wisdom
of the common
kissed by divine.

the lesson is nothing but this:

be alive
