By Vicki L. Flaherty
Without effort, we breathe.
Our breath expands and contracts,
comes and goes,
fills our lungs and releases from our body.
Our breath cycles with a rhythm,
no two inhales or exhales the same.
We move unconsciously with its ins and outs.
Invited to notice the power of it,
to pay attention to the miracle of it.
We gently allow it to carry us
into and through each moment
in this precious space we call life.
I find something very powerful in sitting with my body breathing. I can’t seem to capture it in words, though I keep trying. ;]
