Sometimes the wind breathes,
Breathes life into —
Desperate lungs, verdant life respiring.
She rolls slow; I’m humming,
Childhood rhymes as,
She breathes sunsets through me.
We inhale, exhale; singing tunes,
Sunlight cools; dusk’s —
Cotton-candy clouds float hope.

Inhale, exhale, breathe the summer sky
And the sweet sickening scent of the purple flowers in the alley
Illuminate the clouds behind pillars of sunshine
And all this time we inhale time we exhale the foul moments that undid us.
Inhale, exhale, breathe life into the iris of sea
Salty and watery, I inhaled and chocked on the water that gives life and takes it back
I inhaled, the collective sigh of dogs in the sunshine soaking in the heat
I exhaled the fragrant Alberta roses that stamp our license plate
Inhale, exhale, breathe life
And the coming of another age, another time to grow older as we descend on breezes in the sun
And the pool water is a hot tub from the heat and we can test the salt in the air
Exhale and breathe pick up the scent of river valley and rain drop
And as the dawn of light becomes
Breathe the catches of light in the curtains
And inhale the wonderful window air
