Fifteen

 



my breath is calm here

sunlit butterflies dance

kiss my resting feet

welcome the day

 

on retreat again

in the hills above the city

I meditate and count breaths

while fifteen miles away

he may count his last

 

decades rise and fall

breaths, too, until they don’t

no one is exempt

blue sky above, earth below,

keep walking until
