Breathing.....(Alive)

Today...
I left out for work a bit early
so...not being in any hurry
I decided..to take the scenic route in.

Driving....
no radio...just
driving...and breathing...

because there is something about
the combination of sunlight and wind...
and the way it touches your skin when
your driving 45 miles an hour....

It's ethereal and esoteric...
practically a religious experience...
as wind and sun
move through
trees ...and water
I watch everything green
shimmer and rustle...
as I ...
drive...and
breathe...and
realize...that nothing
is quite so bad if I can
breathe....and know I'm alive.
Sun...
wind...
green...
trees...
earth sounds...
children playing on swings...
ground beneath me...
solid...
breathe...
I...am...Alive.
