Eternal Breath


I see you in a single crystal
in each and every facet
I feel you in a single flower
in each and every petal
you change my stance
with outstretched arms
of the branches of each tree
when the sun lights you
when the shadows hide you
it is in the essence
that I find you
you hide and thrive
within all life
planted in the seeds
and human heart
the eternal promise
of being palpable
for each to find you
to merge with
the
eternal breath
life

  6. These ice crystals remind me of filigreed butterflies.The lines

    "when the sun lights you
    when the shadows hide you
    it is in the essence
    that I find you"

    give me hope. Another wonderful gift to us, Tammie.

  66. Hi Tammie, I have never seen ice crystals like these in real life. They are, to me, truly amazing! There seems to be some plan to their formation - almost as if they are the ghost of leaves past, or perhaps of those yet to come. Have a lovely weekend, and keep warm! Janice. x
