Suddenly The Air

Poem By Charles Chaim Wax

no longer oppressive
the sky suffused
with light
clouds also
and In my mind
I snapped pictures
as I journeyed along the beach
in Coney Island
and for a moment
perfectly still
wind blowing
astonishing golden streaks
across heaven
overwhelmed by
the beauty of the world
and questioned why the whole shebang
could not be wonderful as this
and how suffering
had become rooted
in the being
of humans
to willingly leave
let go
not bothered by departure
simply immersed
in a single breath.
