From a place in

the body

and beyond

the body

comes breath.


It flows

with gentleness in;

it flows with release out

as the rhythm and

insistent beauty of life.


Sustaining and

reminding in awareness,

its substance is of the now:

in each captured volume

of air,

in each breath

held delicately

in the moment.


With each breath

life is renewed;

with each breath,

life’s wondrous

and precarious

nature is revealed

in an invisible thread

that travels through

the body.


Breath is of the body,

and in it

is the measure

of life.
