Why am I Breathless?

just-breathe

Is it from hearing, “I don’t understand what love is and I may come to love you in time.”
Devastation

Is it from that first high dive plunge?
Euphoria

Is it because you died?
Lost

Is it because sunset in the desert bleeds love from the sky?
Enthralling

Is it from the cacophony of disharmony spewing from the television?
Unbearable

Is it from the soft nuzzling of an animal touching your soul?
Unconditional

Is it from deep chasm guilt that blisters once more with no warning?
Whomped

Is it from falling upward into the stars on a dark Wyoming night?
Holy

Is it from free-falling changes that color our sojourn here?
Unsettling

Is it from meadows of wildflowers on a zephyr kissed mountain?
Exhilarating

Is it from childhood lost?
Tears

———

Is it from rising out of within and embracing without?
Learning

Is it from a mind full of laughter and family bonds?
Loving

Is it from finding the woman that IS me; gentle of spirit and She Bear on fire?
Being

Is it from touching another and feeling reciprocation in light exchanged?
Growing

Is it from seeing my aging hands on the steering wheel … “Whose are THESE!?!
Questioning

Is it from the fragile nature of life becoming still?
Acceptance

Is it from wonderment toward after living?
Peace

———

Am I breathing?
Barely
