Breath of Life

The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

I leap off the dock hands and arms extended out. A bracing cold sheaths me. The lake water is sweet. I love the splash sound and cold in my mind on my body. I divide the water engulfs me. Under I listen to silence slipping behind. I run silent, long, stretch, and hold back my scream to breath. I come up; air pushes in. I take it and hear my breath and my heart shivers.

The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
