B r e e z e


In breath of cool

there flows a tease

that nurtures soul

to sail with ease.

Not to control

it brushes bees,

refreshes face

and fluffs up trees.

I wish I could

possess the keys

to capture it

but not to seize

I’d fly away

off to Belize

be restful there

with bread and cheese,

and in the morn

upon my knees

i’d thank the Lord

my heart appeased,

and ask again

i’d beg Him please

to bring on back

this Blessed B r e e z e.
