LEGACY

By Lisa Huddleston

 

Unknown

Breathe in and the machinery whirs to life

Inspiration and expiration too

Letters and syllables and words and stories

Notes and phrases and melodies and songs

Symbols of life and breath but not life itself

Evidence of life one life all life lived out

Inhaled and exhaled

Until as expected but not really all breath runs out

And only the symbols remain

A legacy not of breath but of

Stories and songs
