Young leaves sigh in the breeze
Ant ferries bits of food to its nest
Fat, pollen-legged bee caresses the petals
of a rough-leafed dogwood blossom  
Rabbit contemplates clover in a beam of light
Groundhog, ever the critic takes one bite
from each ripening tomato and moves on  

Chest rises and falls
                    breathing in and
breathing out

Breath mixing with the breath of
                   the leaves           
the ant
                                  the bee                 
the rabbit     
                                    the groundhog  

Breath rising to mix with all the breath on the planet All the animals the plants Breath turning to rain turning to plants turning to animals turning to breath Mixing with all the breath on the planet  

Bee buzzes

               ant ferries

        rabbit muches

Groundhog moves on
