Breath of my breath …


breath of my breath:

pulse of my heart

spinning my world

out of its place,

turning my thoughts

into spirals of space ..



death of my death:

souls slip apart;

warmth of the sun,

a honey-bee humming..

Beats of my heart

a lone drummer drumming … .

    Goodness, more metaphysics, Marya. I just love thoughts like these – and the feelings that go with them. “Death of my death …. a honey-bee humming….” From the contemplation of eternity to the feel of nature preserved.

    Good morning, Jamie … thank you very much.

    There is something deeply reassuring in the beautifully complex diversity of nature .. and the sounds of contented bees on a hot summer’s day is totally relaxing .. drowsy-making, in fact 🙂
