What is necessary

Quietly losing breath
She speaks
Into one ear and
Yet across oceans

Her simple dreams
And routine ways
Found their path to hearts

Her silent breaths are a
Ticking clock
Her movement gently
Spells what’s lost

One step back please
The dance instructor states
Don’t rush this time
Let the music carry

You past the woes of every
Day life
The stresses of waking again
And lying down

Stop in timeless movement
Look past the cares
Deeper to existence
Take in the breath

Oh such simple breath
Which means more
Than not getting it all
