a lesson in Breathing

Don’t let the air just
Slip in and out of you
Ritualistically

Control it, absorb it
Let it seep into your soul

Feel it wander through your mind
Flowing through your thoughts
Clearing out the dust and distraction

Take from it the essence of life
Take from it the healing of nature

Focus on the sounds
Inhale, exhale, whoosh
Silence

Appreciating the complex machinery
And mystery that is our bodies
Learning to strengthen
The spirit within
