restoring this poem. I've always loved this one

Carbon
             Hydrogen
                              Oxygen
      Nitrogen
                     Methane
We know what’s in it
     We know we need it
That deep seated need to hold it in our chests
                        In
            Out
The living essence of God
 
                               Swirling inside us
                     Close
A lingering gesture
                    A reminder
Of how we were created
                          When He blew the breath of Life
Into Adam
                
              May every breath
    Be a communion
                                    An intimate touch
A remembrance
                            Of a relationship

I was realizing lately that who and what I Am is the same breath that breaths through others...we are like trees in the woods and His breath, the breeze moving through it.
Nice poem!
Thanks for stopping by my page and reading and commenting.

What a beautiful way in form and words to honor God, who gives us breath and so much more! We are blessed by your poem....
"A lingering gesture
A reminder
Of how we were created
When He blew the breath of Life
Into Adam"
....Your writing is special and is truly felt in the soul.

The structural word format strengthens the image of breathing, as the text ebbs and flows across the page. The 'I Am' here, pays great homage to whom we should be praising, for this gift of life.

Lovely share!

I think I like it too. :) The formatting you used makes a reader's eyes jump around a little too much, but it's good. well written.
