Undying pulse

Undying pulse

Blood and breath
           taken for granted
thought and feeling too
           how the sunlight
reaches into the earth
           producing all energy
including the air
           that we breathe
and such an array
           of beauty in the natures
around us / not to mention
           our own

To speak of blood
           its flow and its warmth
and to speak of the words
           shaped by tooth and tongue
how vocal this world of ours
           how intricate
the truths of the rose
           and of her beauty
and of our love
           and its undying pulse
