Breathless- Teri H Hoover (prompt breath of seasons wheel turning)
Lift your eyes if you dare.
Just one glance brings you to your knees.
Fierce, in a sheer beauty that claims your soul.
She whispers, "do not be afraid."
Last year when I was young, I was not afraid.
I now know what lives behind that beauty.
Like a breath
I am drawn
Into the arms of the endless autumn sky.
