Inhale gusto of babbling water on swollen banks
tossed to and fro in Spring's raucous flow
Exhale stale silence of what was
a bier adrift on somber current goes

Inhale brilliant rays of morning's light
angles that penetrate as waves filling inlets
Exhale life sucking darkness
low tide pulls hard drawing debris

Inhale joyful sound of child's first gasp
life fills lungs upon day of birth
Exhale grief of miscarriage
cold death of unformed life

Inhale damp softness
as potter forms clay
Exhale vessel cracked
heat of fire exposes imperfections
