Eileen's Breath - Poem by Atef Ayadi

An ancient
Came into my lung
And interrupted.
A breath of pain;
A breath of love;
A breath of forgiveness.
It struck first my heart
And shattered my rusted veins.

The snow is falling,
Enlightening the streets.
I kept walking …
Following this
Ancient woman's breath.
