Glory Clouds: Day26 #NaPoWriMo

My little heart is full of joy as I woke to all of these beautiful poets cheering me on in today’s feature on https://www.napowrimo.net/ Never in a million year’s did I think I’d hit the floor like that! Thank you so much, I’m honored and humbled to be with all of the poets . Okay on with today’s poem….

if I should be so bold to make it out 

of my own head, 

taste the sounds of stillness,

sit beside my own bed, as quiet streams, 

melt away the frays  of infirmity, 

breathe that first breath of daylight,

fires that spark, that quake, 

spindle,  loom 

aching in  the dark,

burning candles at both ends,

flame, steam, huffs-

puffs of purpose 

the sum total,

breathing,

where the 

quiet bends.
