For Ema [ver 1]

pink fleshy lungs expanding with each
new breath, each new moment
taking in the atmosphere from ten thousand
years ago and being born again

twisting furrowed cherry blossom trees
rough bark expanding with years
creating little pockets for winters snow to settle
then fall out in the sun's rays
to make a breath taking spectacle of dancing crystal

and each log in the fire
burning for food or for laughs or for love
must split and crack
a persistent percussion playing off the pines
flames bringing the warmth and sound to the
cold quiet forest

hanging clouds stretch out for miles blanketing
the earth and blanketing you
and your eyes upturned searching for heaven
they open up the way you have
exposing the universe
exposing your universe
bare and raw
full of creation
