the small significance of slow beginnings



she is breathing
in the new, out
the long cold
way the sky slants
too far south.

she is practicing the
art of both chai and chi.

she poems soft,
ponders clouds,

keeps her wishes in a jar,
curls hungry fingers
’round a star.

 

 

Happy New Year. It’s Quadrille week over at dVerse. Come play!

    breathing in and out, deliberately, slowly….placing wishes in a jar and holding on to stars. Sigh. Make it so. 🙂

    I love what you did with the second line: “In is the new out.”

    “She poems soft.” That’s beautiful.

    The poem makes me think of snow as a huge mantle of plush. I loved this:”she is practicing the
    art of both chai and chi.” and I loved the ending!
