Breathing

Wordle 76 - playing with words

Scurried breathing, 
in and out, 
in a dazed frame of mind.

Slow breathing, 
letting breath by breath 
drive away fears, 
empty out ambivalence, 
and bring in tenderness. 

Breathing holy prayers, 
like a bird's soft wings 
flapping gently 
against an anxious heart.

Breathing deeply, 
incensed air 
filling expanding lungs, 
bringing sensations 
of mysterious presence.
Me, present in me? 

Breathing,
like my very first breath,
drawn in water
so long ago that 
memories don't go there.

Breathing,
with the knowledge that 
one day 
I will draw my
last breath.
