the exchange

the morning air
is a gentle breeze
refreshing my body
refreshing my soul
refreshing my spirit.
as i breathe in pneuma
that Holy Spirit breath
at the dawning
i breathe in life
and exhale the old
exchanging night's
oldness for new life
at the beginning of day.

"...he breathed on them and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit [pneuma].'"  ~ John 20:22
