The Poet’s Breath – by Audrey Howitt

i met you in the sun

you wrote your poetry
on clouds
blue on white
a daisy, your pen

until grey streaks pushed
your kind aside
deeper and deeper
into the edges
pulling petals apart
a litany to tiny ends

the wilt of a berry
on your breast
rebirth it’s red
this new ink
the leaves your pages

poetry, your breath.

 

 

Ms. Howitt is classical singer and voice teacher, a licensed attorney and psychotherapist. Her work has been published by Lost Tower Publications.
