Breathing.

An automatic bodily function,

we don't have to think, we just do.

From our first screaming breath, our in utero breathing, our final gasp.

We breathe.

But every breath is different.

This is my calming, in through the nose and out through the mouth, breath,

This is my deep breath and count to 10 that stops me losing my temper.

This is my quick breath when I'm teaching and talki...

Don't Forget To Breathe

Stuttering awake
in the anxious hours
when white noise

suddenly so awake
in the anxious hours

Can we not comprehend 

the whole eternity?

Finally awake for the first time. Fully present here and now. What a gift.

Hold onto your handlebars. 

I take this breath like dope.

Into my blood, down into the depths of my being.

Where being is seeing.

Like a probe searching for answers.

My feet carry my swiftly as I walk.

Rooted firmly in the earth, I am strong.

Drowning

a whole sea full of water yet it’s full of nothing but air

i’m drownig and gasping for air...

but no water is there?
