Joanna Hayes: The First Breath In

The First Breath In
Joanna Hayes

The first breath in 
The world was taken that day
First breath of hope,
Death conquering death.

The first breath in
And then exhaled
In the beginning
Wind over the waters.

The first breath in
A world now changed
Irrevocably
First and best communion.

The first breath in
Blood and tears
Bright symbol of
Pain to come.

The first breath in
Perfect timing
Perfect innocence
Perfect love.
