Garden Breeze

In the garden of breezes
this breeze breathes
the deepest and darkest breath
maps with isobaric chart lines
connect points
where pressure changes
death-wind to breath-wind
dark storms and maelstroms
rain and sleet
ice and snow
below the gentle tender breeze
that breathes life-wind light-wind
into the plants
soon to be operating at full
whirlwind capacity
