Astronaut Redux

There is no gravity
No air
What keeps me alive
Spinning
In mid-air?

All the earth,
All the atmosphere
Dissolved
I am a ghost astronaut
Hanging here

Devastating celestial,
Wrathful dakini
Teaching
Razed our lives apart

Breathe emptiness in
Exhale pain out
One must be willing
to stand alone,
in the unknown.“*

*Adyashanti

Astronaut by Charles Morris

Inhale
Exhale
Breathe in
Breathe out

Measured and full
Like a man on the moon
Like an astronaut
Exploring the edges
Of an impact crater

Booted feet
Scuffling up endlessly
Endlessly floating dust
My over-sized suit
Making my hands clumsey
In this lunar soil

Inhale
Exhale
The work is exhausting
Breathe in
Breathe out
Maneuvering, about to learn

Inhale
How the crater
Exhale
Was made
Breathe in
What lead to
Breathe out
Devastating celestial impact

All I know
Inhale
Is that when I look
Exhale
At the earth
Breathe in
From way out here
Breathe out
That the memory of home
Of Family
Inhale
Is so
Hold breath
Very very far away
Exhale
That at times
I have to remind myself
Inhale
Of how to breathe
Exhale
