breathtaking

breathtaking
        that in my dreaming was my waking
that in my body was a center,
        a hole
in which lay the whole
        not mine but all connecting to all
and through this place
        near heart and ribs
an opening
        where before sat fear
guarded on either side
        by yes and no
and with one look at these
        and one deep breath
they were let go
        allowing light
and lightness long hidden
        and
breathtaking.

Janice Vernon, at home now in East Tennessee, USA, near the Great Smokey Mountains. Work life included teaching and practicing law, and now happily back to a learning mode….relative to the likes of gardening, Yoga, and the use of language to describe the indescribable. No terminal degrees yet!
