Abundant Life


a photograph by Sonja Bingen

You breathe, and my lungs
rise and fall like winter trees
swaying, sure of spring,

like water-drops, cells
twisting, galaxies pulsing
with abundant life.


One thought on “Abundant Life

  1. The largeness of this poem in so tight a form makes me feel the pulse of the universe, Steven, and it fits Sonja’s photograph wonderfully. Inside of a cell that is twisting through a drop of water is the universe.
