It isn't Magic by Gregory Orr

The End of a Cold Night by lrargerich

It's not magic; it isn't a trick.
Every breath is a resurrection.
And when we hear the poem
Which is the world, when our eyes
Gaze at the beloved's body,
We're reborn in all the sacred parts
Of our own bodies:
the heart
Contracts, the brain
Releases its shower
Of sparks,
and the tear
Embarks on its pilgrimage
Down the cheek to meet
The smiling mouth.

  1. "every breath is a resurrection..."
    Oh, how I LOVE that!!

  2. i too am riveted to this salutation
    "every breath is a resurrection"....

    those five words were what i needed to hear all day.

    thank you.

  3. I am glad that it gave you what you needed dear. I hope you had a chance to listen to David Whyte as well. He is a wonder. I would follow him to the ends of the earth if he were single I admire him so much, but I am content to listen to his videos and read his work.
