She's the pause
before the verb:
silent imagination
full of expectation
of a what kind of movement

this verb will choose
and always a surprise
when it comes.


She's the breathe
before you speak
that moment

with a cascade of possibility
when everything seems clear

for a second
before the words

jumble it all up


She's the hesitation
before the doing
where the whole future
makes sense

in the magic world

before the act
a moment
when everything fits
before rules
ruin the dream.


She's the chaos
before the plan,
the crumple of paper
and half ideas,
the scribbles
and scoring outs
before the one that makes sense
grows into purpose.


She's the 'before'
of everything:
the essence of it
before it is formed;
the spirit of it
before it breathes;
the nature of it
before it is real.


and lifebreath
of all
