This Breath, a poem by Michael Channing

This Breath
Trilogy of Petals part one

by Michael Channing

plunge your face into the petals let the scent absorb you
nothing in focus but the sky
between blurred and fumbled leaves drumming at your eyes
become nothing more
expect nothing less
this moment
this breath
expect nothing more
become nothing less
this moment
has passed

Heart Undefended
