Every Morning

every morning breathing in
then breathing out again
hypnagogic traveling
waking in the same

planetary atmosphere
that was here before
slipping into consciousness
of dreaming more and more...

every day up in the sky
the Sun's apparent motion
shows us that the emptiness
of space is a light ocean

with all of life intertwined -
every time we breathe
we are travelers on the Earth
until once more we leave...

every morning breathing in
it comes as a surprise
waking as the planet Earth
appears before our eyes

every breath is worth much more
than anything we see
every morning breathing in
just being as we breathe...
