A Small Breath

The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Job 33:4

What am I doing here? I am so high up!

I scream, but there is no sound.

Ah, I have no mouth.


One of my brothers just died.

Am I next? Perhaps.

I’ll just keep floating…

I won’t pop like my brother.


My skin is a thin effervescent membrane.

I dance in the air dependent on the wind.

Why do I feel warmth?


I have already existed for three seconds,

And my life is already near the end.

Why so short?

Oh dear! Can I round the corner?


Yes, I am quite fragile.

Just one jab and I will die.

Oh, how I envy the humans.


I was born because of a warm breath.

It lingers still, and I rise to the Creator.

My ten seconds are now complete.

After all, I am only a bubble.


One thought on “A Small Breath

  1. Very artistic, quite suggestive; awful how “man” values the very breathe of the Creator so little!

    Job 3:16 (KJV)
    Or as an hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants [which] never saw light.
