Mystery of Air

Breath of life
pure miracle of air
particles and waves that share
this mighty will of life

Even on the darkest nights
air weaves its mystery
into these mortal forms
becoming and then freeing
soul to soar

above, beyond
the rushing strength
of waterfalls that roar
in their descent

to fly in skies of indigo
when heaven is alight
with moon and stars revolving
searching, as if seeking for the sun

astounding in its vibrancy
this breath
sometimes known to rise
in spirits flying high
within these nighttime skies
and in our hearts

and found here, just in between
each breath we breathe, we find
this pure miracle of air
in all that is
