the sigh

the sigh

are you aware
of the sigh?
the one
that catches
the back of
your throat?
the sigh that
imbibes beauty—
could be tulips
a line of poetry
or musical thread

that sigh feels
understands where
your true home is
when you ken
this sigh
it’s different
and you know it

stop, even

honor it
the gift
the reminder
that it is
