Of Breath and Light

“I am a hole in a flute that the Christ’s breath moves through. Listen to this music.” Hafiz
 
It is not the mind
That breathes
The body
It is nature
That breathes
 
Light sparkles in the sky
 
Between the stillness
Of a tree
And the stillness
Of God
Is
I
Myself
And
Me
 
Clouds drift across the moon
 
When I look
Into the eyes
Of my cat
They look
Back
Completely
 
When my cat
Looks away
He looks away
Completely
 
Light sparkles on the river
 
To be in a world
Devoid
Of gravity
 
To be absent
From all
Memory
 
To be
Nothing
I am
 
Clouds drift across the sun
 
To be standing
Before
The sea
Witnessing
Motion
Is to be standing
Before the sea
Witnessing
Death
Witnessing
Birth
 
Feet fall and rise
 
Awareness
Of a tree
Is a gift
To a tree
 
Awareness
Of God
Is a gift
Of breath
And light
 
Leaves fall and rise
