A whisper in my vacant chest
Echoes around my heart a lonely sonar.
Darkness bounced back.
My muted throat's first "OM"
Filled rayless stars with shaking
Bursting into ujjayi air.
How victorious the space inside me swells
As I breathe out my solitary planets
Mixing with yours, creating a universe.
Cheering in my jam packed chest
Orbits around my heart companion sonars.
Radiance bounced back.
