White Fire

“Eish shachor al gabei eish lavan.” The Torah is written “black fire on white fire.” (Talmud, Midrash Tanhuma, Genesis 1)

This morning I made note
of my breath
swell of inhale
cool air filling lungs
shoulders lifting
the welcome softening into exhale
chin up
head back
happy belly smiles
the pause in between

The spaces between the work
between the notes, the letters, the words
in the body
white fire
