I'm falling right into his eyes,
clearer than last time,
closed open closed
open.

How can it be
that he almost wasn't
but then was
breathing?

For the softness of earth,
for the healing power of our bodies,
and for Your Image reflected
in every human eye,
for breathing,
for life itself,
thank You,
Adonai.
