Air ~ Truth ~ Breath ~ Life

 

The Element ~ AIR 

 

by Fleur Chetwynd

 

I call upon Air

to dance us a tune,

a wishing of wisdom

our love can pass through.

 

With a sigh and arrr haa

a long breath is drawn,

penetrating pure substance

between dusk and the dawn,

 

"The first quality i bring",

in a whirlwind she sings,

"Is uniqueness of Truth  

that your soul is fashion,

through the wings of air 

you must give it expression.

 

As purely as the sky is so blue

breathe your life force, in truth, in truth.

 

Guard your freedom, your sacred kingdom,

or skies become clouded and clarity shrowded.

 

By sharing your songs

you breathe your self care,

whilst healing your soul

you honour sweet air.

Defining your space 

with elegance and grace."

 

"I AM", in wispering winds she brings,

"Initiation of birth in first breath", she sings.

"A sacred vow between matter and spirit,

a bridge to life force

and your power lies in it.

 

I am youth, 

I am spring,

I am hope of new beginning.

So play with me as a leaf of a tree.

Shuffle and dance and flow in a trance.

 

And, if ever your voice becomes lost

your winter too long,

then look to the heavens where I do belong.

In unchanging mobility and penetrating ability,

I will slice through your fears and reclaim your tears.

As Equinox winds sweep Earth clear,

I will lighten your load and call love near."

 

In a final gust she turns in the sky,

in an outward breath to all she cries,

 

"Only can we live by letting Air go, 

I am borrowed,

in time

and love must this know.

Not mine, not me,

but totally free.

 

In this truth your love will be

will be,

Inspiring us all to see

to free."

 

This poem deeply reflects the heart of my recent process particularly the nature of unique expression and inner truth that is not mine to own, and how a resonance expresses itself through me, despite how I ebb and flow, cloud and clear, as my center of self re-orientates again and again.
