‘If my breath’

by Susie Smith

 

 

If my breath were the wind, I would blow all worrying from the earth,

Leaves and twine tumble and splay.

Sun would shine so bright to soften the squalls

While awaiting the coolness of the moon; to soothe her…

 

If only my breath could blow the worries of the earth away.

 

Trees bend forth against this breeze, roots smiling inside the earth,

The birds open winged, glide and skate upon the cleansing breeze.

They know, they know.

Moonbeams dance and clap to this song with joy, with ease.

 

If only my breath could blow the worries of the earth away.

 

Time would join in, escaping confines n’dictations, to be free.

The rivers, the seas, beyond the sky against the stars,

My breath capturing sickly muddle and darkness

Cleansing the Great Mother of all pain and scars

 

If only my breath could blow the worries of the earth away.

 

So, for today I just breathe.

 

I breathe with deep love, I breathe to bring change.

Because my breath can blow the worries of the earth away,

It touches the moon, the sun, the trees, the birds, the sky, the stars, the rivers, the

sea…

 

For I am the earth and she, she is me.
