SHRINKING INTO ITSELF

How to weigh the breath
the flame the soul or the ash
the body conceals:
I can't turn my inside out
nor know life's weight when lifeless

between earth and sky
it disappears one with
elements quiet
there's no way to know the thread
or its mechanism that binds

secures life now or
beyond what if I can't feel
the weight of the colour
on the leaves on tree maybe
shrinking into itself
