National Poetry Month Challenge - Day 10

Today's prompt was to write a "future" poem.  This is my offering - a vision of how our world could be.  We are one.

Future Breathing

Once upon a time,
we thought our bodies
had outlines.
We thought that one heart
was distinct from the next.
We thought that touch was
the only connection.

There is nothing between us now.
The distant past of disconnection
no longer contains the human spirit.
actions –
float just above the earth walkers.
Now we are truly one.

Blue-white chords –
strands that link generations –
there is an echo of shared consciousness
in every wave hello
and every kiss goodbye.

The cardinal knows your song.
The turtle feels your soul’s vibration
with his slow, steady feet.
The hawk knows you are
becoming more

One step bleeds into
a string of days.
One year passes the baton
to many future years.

It is all happening right now.
Heaven is all around us
where we stand –
where we breathe.
