bringing the outside in

December 28, 2011- Small Stones
bringing the outside in   by  Teri H Hoover

The earth breathes out an ocean of wind,
Straining mightily outside these bedroom walls.

The home exhales, a calm and steady breath.
Purring warm air through insulated, metal vents.

Still in bed, my dog and I add our imperceptible puffs,
turning the grey sky, into a hush of dusty pink.
