A Poem – Transparency

I want to settle inside

Next to the lungs of life,

Breathe deep with every pulse

Of its heart, steady


I want my layers shed,

The worn and crusted to be


Letting me breathe, easy


I want the false life

Sucked out,

Leaving my shell, chipped and coarse

But intact, strong, rigid – clear


Pushing, pulsing up

Is pure sweet and warm,

Life’s essence filling me whole,

Reclamation and Regeneration


I am transparent again
