Take the Time to Breathe, a poem


Have you felt
The rush of color
Fill your cheeks
The hot breath
Of summer sun
Upon your neck
Sweat trickles
And finds the curves
A wet trace
Beneath your hairline
Have you felt
The fingertips
Of gentle breeze
That soothes your skin
Beneath the shade of trees
Whose brilliant canopy
Rises toward the heavens
And leans in, gentle
Sloping roofs
Of lush green
Bold and beautiful
Like a peacock
Under the outstretched sky
Have you ever
Felt the glory
Of the morning sunrise
Or the dainty bow
Of the setting sun
Wild and resilient
Tame and gentle
Repose beneath the layers
Of colors luminescent
Sleep within the sounds
Soothing to the soul
Take the time
Before it’s too late
Take the time
To breathe.
