Abela – Hawaiian name meaning breath, breathing spirit.
Oxygen and gravity bring us, again, to be.
In Out Stretch, deep
Hold it in Repeat, repeat.
The pattern: hypnotic. Meditative stretch, it lulls me
Mind, racing. Years flicker past. Time travel. This. The key.
Seconds, years entwined in thought, mine to keep
all at once, thoughts and days and minutes, a quantum leap
together. I am wondering as I wander. Can you see
through my infinite mirror, reflecting
To the hot tub, snow flakes, fluttering from the midnight sky
like our personal stars, on eyelashes, magnifying the blue in your eyes
Exploring bodies, ideas, roads untraveled and the water’s warmth that day.
I drift back, snapped with time. Now. Here, again. Standing tall, lungs expand, I fly.
I hear your voice, the whispers, the laughs, confessions, same as then, your sighs.
Together we are us and them. We are 5. Four, three, two, one. Namaste.
