A Fresh Breath This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Hark, the chill rustling of chlorophyll sheets,
the leaves of Nature's Bible. 
Her true cantabile whisper - raspy
with influenza of industry - I thinks returns,
phantom but full-felt quiver of air
clasping, caressing our flutter of existence. 
The gentle breeze of lyricism,
the jarring gust of chromaticism - both
in one breathtaking breath of Mother Earth - neither
caught whole heart in spirit of Man, save
a momentary letter, a transient note
that makes us know! 

Shh!  can you hear
the time-touched tune of anima ancestral?  We,
overtones in the wind's soulful timbre.  We, Nature,
with Man just one sweet pitch.  A fresh inventive
Dissonance enriched in harmonies old. 

Hark, the sublime song of Life,
a scherzo celebration of air. 

Inhale, exhale.  Find we Holy
Aspiration in Natural
Respiration - coaxed to Conscious
by the wind - Stimulated -
Transcending caffeine and meth and sugar heights -
Liberating real for the chorus of
Beautiful Truth!
