Breath – A Philosophical Poem

Is the unconscious act of breathing, a form of speech

Can the exhale of inhale’s pitch; to soundwaves preach?

Is breath, not the chanter in speech’s ventricular song,

Voicing the dulcet cords of the childhood mother tongue.

Perhaps, if breath is a form of speech, a language of its own

Then in quiet reflection, with silence to ourselves alone

Then maybe, just maybe, breath is silence’s Rosetta stone,

Transcribing the breath, spiritum, into the language of the soul.
