newborn breath

newborn breath

newborn breath

The whisper of your breath
Disturbs the soft sea bed
of air
Rippling between us.

Soft as down,
Soft cheeks of wonder
Flexing
with growing pains

I marvel, eyes popping
an unbeliever
converted to wonder
that such a thing is possible
as I live and breathe.
