four deep breaths

suddenly aware

deep breath

but not conscious

deep breath


deep breath

senses subdued

deep breath


two deep breaths

utterly unknown place

deep breath

secret central essence of myself

deep breath


deep breath


deep breath

with you

deep breath

infused throughout with you

deep breath

your life

deep breath

in mine entwined

deep breath

and mine entwined

deep breath

in yours

      nice of you to say so, Graham. It’s definitely a sound poem, isn’t it? – not much on paper/screen.

    I don’t know about that John. I think space on a page is good – it gives you room to think. I hear how the poem should sound by the way it appears on the page. I give the words and the spaces weight, regardless of the breath directions, because of the words you’ve chosen and where you’ve placed them.
