Uncover the Sun

Breathe

Don’t hold it in too long,
that breath
that fear

Every worried thought
that sits inside
unexhaled

becomes a weight
heavier
than any virus

Breathe
deep belly
to diaphragm

Round it out
like a baby
laughing

and finding
her feet
for the first time

Don’t hold anything
past one full
in and exhale

and breathe
right through loss
and love again
