Celebration

This celebration
Recognition that you are
I am
Alive
Breathing
In and out, in and out
Without thinking
Being
The extremes and in between

"I let you see me
Covet your regard"
You take deep breaths waiting for
Emotions to wash through and over
I celebrate the life that is
You now the witness
Feelings expressing
I gather and swirl them
In a cup
They spill over the edge
You pour into the moment.
