ALLOW THE BREATH, ALLOW THE BEAT

Allow the breath. . .
Allow the beat–
for this one grows
your daily chest and belly
to their biggest
the other times the flows
that circulates the air and food
and lots of other stuff that’s good
from your sweet head
down to your sturdy feet.

And, trust that body–
for it knows
so much about what soothes,
what strengthens, and what hurts
for itself, for you,
and for the whole entire Universe. . .

So listen to it,
listen for it well,
for it can speak quite soft at times,
yea, in the whispiest of whispers. . .

And if you miss it,
there is no other thing
or living being
that will ever tell
the vital, wise
and truest tale
that only sounds
within your own
incomparable
and wonder-filled
Earth shell.
