Stones and Breath

If I could tell of the lives on these stones,
breathe the breath of life into marble so that faces materialize,
eyes brighten, laughter comes like waterfalls… tears like rain.

If I could live long enough to walk stone by stone through every life,
to open up joy as light as air,
heartache like the whole world on your chest, and courage
they were men, they were lions, they were lambs.

If I could tell just one life, and by the telling change just one life, change your  life
then take a humble hour now, put down your cares and listen closely to a life from long ago.
