Divine Breath

Ever present

Change of seasons
Passage of time

Simplistic rhythm
Enigmatic process

Filling with life
Purging of death

Ever present

Rising of the sun
Appearance of the moon

Proximity unnoticed
Necessity irrefutable

Providing life’s essence
Expelling its poison

Ever present

Air we breathe
Sustenance we need

Intimacy overlooked
Impact undeniable 

Bestowing new life
Conquering sin’s infliction

Ever present

Beat of life
Power to live

Heart’s desire
Spirit’s yearning

Loving with passion
Living within
