Black Poetry : Breath out! Breath in!

Breath out! Breath in!

Love leaped from rocks on high sea cliffs,
romping in the winds that pierce the mists,
stretching out wings ‘cross sun plush lands
to ride on the breaths inhaled by man

and search those souls for hearts of stone
to infuse joy into flesh and bone
and hear their sighs make songs sing
with breath pushed out by Love’s spread wings.

What blast of sound can summon Love
What beckon of voice will do.
What ring of the phone can hearken it
to the heartache that reigns in you.

Such crossroad of wonder in the lives of men
has starts, beginnings, hopes and ends.
It’s a tasty, succulent slice of life
that all of us covet and lucky ones bite.

We hunger for its pulse and will starve ‘til it comes,
feeding on its impact with a glorious hum,
crying when it’s over dripping tears so frail,
thinking we’ll never breathe, love again or inhale.

But Love still leaps from high sea cliffs,
with a romp in the wind and a pierce of the mists,
yet hears that heartache’s voice so thin
that it spreads its wings on the next breath in.
