to Alexi Murdoch (breathe)

just home from DC, event at the National Press Club (very cool) and a great lunch with a publishing friend. pleasant day to be sure! listened to lots of Alexi Murdoch in the car and was hit by this… scribbled it while my knee did the driving (sorry drivers around me!!) and here it is (song link is below)~

to Alexi Murdoch (breathe)

sitting cross-legged
Siddhartha I am
in that ancient form
letting all in my cells
escape in a steady
stream, imagining your voice
deep and beautiful
in that ancient chant
letting the sound of the song
sink me completely down
until you compel my face
to break above

and my eyes open wide
as the fresh air
rushes in.
