Simple....isn't it. To breathe?
It takes awareness, just for a short moment to notice
I am breathing in, I am breathing out every moment
But I take you for granted
I forget the beauty and the gift of life you hold, the seeds you have planted
You're not just a breath are you?
You are a message, an opportunity to discover and renew.
Just like a seed that you have offered and I now bestow
If I listen in and look, I see the landscape and the ability to grow
The constant change and re-creation
It is a cycle of wander and elation.
Every breath is a new beginning and a new end
An untold story with a beginning, middle and end
So, for this moment now, let me connect to you
I won't take you for granted I want to travel and learn too
To discover the inner space
As i draw through my own body, with a simple trace
You, the breath, you can help me understand
Those stories that lie in my body, like a mountain of land
But I want to climb these internal mounds
To understand, with you, the breath, their offerings and bounds
As with this awareness, this noticing and time
I can release the tightness, find freedom, like the sky
Where each breath can deepen that little more
Feed my soul with what it is really asking for
To be free of baggage and unnecessary clutter
So you can travel and fill all the space and it's matter
Enlivening my experience to live so extraordinarily
So that each breath, is an individual journey, momentarily.
