Breath and Hunger


a time of wait
breath and hunger
figure of eight
stand at the gate
wander round in wonder

plants in the garden
with music they grow
in morning sunlight
little seedlings to sow

hunger burns and yearns
never sleeps always keeps
a fan to the living furnace
a moment to a minute
to an hour to a day
breath like time
comes in goes out
yearns yearns yearns
