Beside the sea

I breathe beside the sea,
in and out.

The waves breathe in and out,
the tide, in and out.

The wind breathes,
in and out

under the sun breathing
in and out so slowly,

until it exhales
into the solar system,

until the universe breathes
in and out one last time,

though God keeps breathing
in and out

in me breathing
beside the sea.
