breathe!

 

Still-life form lay in garden;

very image of the holy tri-unity

perfectly cast in brown clay.

 

The divine animator stoops,

gently cradles prone body, then

exhales his inimitable spirit life.

 

Heart beats as chest rises;

eyes flutter open in surprise

as first man meets his maker.

 

Breathe on us, into us,

that we, so cold dead in sin,

might inhale pure love with

 

respirations of clear joy,

to live grace-full and forgiven;

the image of God, restored.
