A Birth, A Breath - Poem by Michael Ardizzone

A coincidence of motion
meets with the apparition of affection
to create, in one's heart
a fluttering of birth

(the birth of something molten
that flows downhill
and pounds in your ears) .

A whirlwind of stillness
(grasping for straws in silence)
.the mind reels
.the body aches

(and with realization comes hope-
and with realization comes)

continuation.

Time stops
for no man
but for new love
it holds its breath.
