A release from bindings,
The long sigh out.
A breath that travels from the base of the spine,
Out through the nose and mouth.
The uncaging of birds that flutters inside the chest,
The sweet release of throat constricting tears.
The celebration of the unruly and the wild,
The cultivation of acceptance and heroic surrender.
The crescendo of sound that falls to silence,
The wave that rolls with a roar,
And then a murmur to the shore.
A deep belly howl to the moon;
