THE BREATH OF US


~~~  ***  ~~~  ***  ~~~  ***  ~~~  ***  ~~~

 

What?  Another beautiful day?  holy moly.  I had 3 summer fun days on the lake.  It was glorious.. I’m tan.  yeow… now back to the salon and packing up the house.  oh my…

Still much to do…  take a breath.  one little step at a time.   inhale….. exhale… again

I inhale your air as we pass

it tastes of yesterday’s yearning

and last night’s lonely

 

I didn’t want that in my lungs

I didn’t want that through my body

Even my exhale didn’t rid the breath of you

 

it’s what we do when breathing

take in air that’s been filtered through

someone else…

     something else

 

I side-track a walk through the park

breathing in the clean fresh of trees

no agenda here, no despair, or lonely

 

Big breaths swirls fresh green and sky

through my cells,  out goes the lonely of  you

into the trees and sky to be filtered clean

 

I linger here, in the park, with the trees

with the air fresh, gathering in as much

verdancy and azure blue  as I can.

 

A couple approach my serenity

arms slung about each other

passing me with their lover’s breath.

 

I give them my breath of green and blue

I inhale deeply, filling up on their love

It tastes tender, sweet, full of lust.

 

I let it fill my body.

Does the mind of you take care of the body of you and visa versa?

What is foundationally unstable in your environment that needs to change?

What resources do you need to gather to get the job done?

  2. I really enjoyed this. Now I’m even more mindful of my breath–where does it come from–where has it been? Wonderful write!
