Breathe

in the day
earth and subtle drops
would-be dew in the air

no matter

how cold
at the tip of the nose

the mind remains

warm and cozy
alert and coiled

systolic beat
shuffling feet

crisp leaves ripe
for tinder

in underbrush
kindled

the sound of souls
wanders

wonders
the good earth

so much life
in a day

Chagall 2018
