"fragment of cosmic breath"
i, in silent wonders of cyclical calmness,
am learning to love and learning to give
a small piece of my mind away, in silent,
simple, subtle rhythms, a
fragment of memories relived, in pieces
of harmony, shattered by fear, a
cosmic leer of things unknown, in
breath of love, and love in breath
and every time i pass unseen
every cycle repeated, and broken, i
strive to heal, to feel and to see
i take my turn and stop. to free myself
is a step toward madness, the cycle unbroken, a
step to relieve pain from my words, which unspoken,
encroaching the stillness of my heart, release
death of love, and love through death
i am a simple fragment
of cosmic breath,
and every strive i take
is a step encroaching death.
