in the wonder

sitting and breathing,
I am again
in the wonder

there are fissures
in my night sky
I see a skerrick
of heaven

flaming stones
happen through
etching minutes
on small hours

starbursts course
onto the Milky Way,
snow in space and
angel dust in my eye

pieces of humanity
drift in the iris
breathing stops

in the incredible
of existence
and the favour
of life

I respire
once more

author comment

I loved this poem. There are so many fascinating word choices and the imagery is fantastic. If I had to chose one favorite line it would be "snow in space and angel dust in my eye", but there are so many lines that really deserve praise in this poem.

I would like to make two small suggestions if you don't mind. First, I think "the" on line three could be deleted. Second, I think "breathing stops" on the fifth stanza would be better as "breathing pauses", "breathing slows" or "breathing catches/stilts". For me, "stops" implies that it isn't going to start up again (particularly with breathing or heart beats), but I think there are plenty of alternatives that would fit.

Just like Ian said, I think the theme is great. Mindfulness, mediation, and the wonders of nature are things I find particularly enjoyable to explore.
