i've been quick to breath these days / by Ellen Sorensen

i've been quick to breath these days

letting all this summer air sink into my lungs

let's get sun drunk together 

and feast on the berries that stain our lips 

 

and these are the wildwood days 

laying in the shade of green under a sky of blue 

on a blanket my grandmother made

in the days of her youth 

 

so inhale with all of your might 

because the stories of you soul 

are about to unfold 

under the sun of the summer
