In the Breath


In the blink of my eyes
In the breath that I've drawn
What have I missed

Each sacred second
Too numerous to comprehend
But too regular to be denied

In God's time, the moments remain
Uncounted in my memory
But present nevertheless
-SS-

This a.m. beginning an Easter Season E-Course, presented by Abbey of the Arts , with reading of the wind, the breath, etc. I resurrected this poem I wrote in my journal last week....
