I closed my eyes (Day 743)

I closed my eyes 

   and angels soared   

great wings beating   flapping 

at the air  

like four and twenty blackbirds 

or a score 

   of fireflies   


over a field of spring-green wheat

I closed my eyes 

   and a wave arose 

transluscent   towering   

with a roar 

that froze my heart   still 

I did not founder

did not drown    but floated   gently   

   over its crest  

         at rest 

upon the liferaft of my breath
