HER PRAYERFUL BREATH

Posted on September 20, 2011 at 2:55 AM

She sat on the grass

beneath the summer sun

 

looking at you

as if for the first time

 

 and as she looked at you

you looked beyond her

 

at the distant sky

and how the clouds

 

resembled a woman’s bust

and how humorous it was

 

when an airplane

went right through

 

on its way to some far off land

and as she took your hand

 

she said things about love

and how she felt

 

and did you feel the same

and you taking the image

 

of the airplane

and woman’s entered bust

 

said oh yes of course

trying not to let it show

 

on your 14 year old face

how funny that image seemed

 

and not realizing how deeper

and more loving she was

 

back then beneath

that summer sky

 

with you thinking

of that day and her

 

and her later death

and you hearing

 

in the silence

of the drawn out dawn

 

her soft words

in her prayerful breath.
