It Still Amazes
Radiance Angelina Petro
This rhythmic exchange
of sky and lungs. We hold sky inside us,
swirl it around so it touches
everything; and the sky, in turn,
holds us, touches everything—such delicate
intimacy, such cosmic play.
And even when our body has breathed its last, still
we merge and we weave and we dive
and we swim, we turn and we go
where ever we go, lifted in the song
of it all.
