22 Breaths

lying naked in the heat
too hot for blanket or a sheet
no wind outside, no window breeze
mind dissolving as it flees

hands stretched out, palms facing sky
I feel recharged, I don't know why
I don't know how it all takes place
it seems to come from outer space...

breathing in and breathing out
rhythmically within without
one,two,three, each breath is new
until reaching twenty-two...

as the light fades I'm impressed
by this something while undressed
this connection with beyond
it seems a place where I belong...

forces larger than I've known
have penetrated through my home
in a current flowing down
and lifting up as they surround

me lying naked in the heat
too hot for blanket or a sheet
mind dissolving as it flees
in what seems a cosmic breeze
