She Breathes ~ A Poem by Andreea Garden


She Breathes


From childhood

she has been seeking

something she could not name

not even imagine.

Colors of the sunset,

waves of the ocean,

music of the heart,

a voice of an angel,

books of holy words,

gardens of wonder,

sweet reminders of Home.

This child could fly.

Then …

she grew up.

Reading books,

following teachers,

her spirit expanded.

Growing a family,

her heart found peace.

Now silently she sits

in the garden of roses,

looking without seeing,

hearing without listening,

writing poems without purpose.

A field of white light

all around.

She breathes Grace.
