Breathe

Breathe
Life spills around me
Water from an over-turned cup
Carelessly, recklessly tossed to the ground
I am running, I am running
Forget what is lacking, what is gone
The sun never shines twice on the same day
Drink this light down
Catch up with me life
While I dance in this orange glow
Trailing this dark mantle behind me
Laughter falls like rain
Wisps of yesterday
Moments hanging in the air
I won’t suffer to reach for them…
The day now dressed in ebony
River winds to rush over
Pale, grey weathered stones
Soothing, cool caress
In silence, I sit now
Beneath mango boughs alone
To listen to the spring moon rising
Its silver melody drips down over me
The gentlest waterfall leaping
To the still deep pool below
