Imbibe

the sweet swill—
i feel the water rushing
my blood, each cell swell & plump
my skin, opening to glow
my eyes shimmering

what soft truth
smoothly flowing, out,
to the tired limbs
to the saddened heart
to the aching anguish where
death & grief should have swallowed, surely consumed me

slowly i breathe, the air
inflating my lungs until i feel
the rising of my heart, sweetness, can you hear it
galloping through every vessel
every vein thundering
thick with hope & love
