point within the circle

Your breaths have been the steps
that lead me into silence.

Drawn into their hypnotic rhythm,
I begin spinning around
the quiet axis you have become.

Breath becomes the point
within the circle around which
we are all revolving.

I keep up with your pace.
The world goes on around us
oblivious as we stake out
sacred ground.

Breathing harder, you
reach for the setting sun.
Spreading heavy wings… you fly.
