In a quiet moment on my own,
My mind occupied with other things,
I was shown the way my life breathes.
I expand and contract.
I open up, and then I withdraw.
I explore and uncover.
I sit and reflect.
I advance. I retreat.
I reach out. I look in.
I inhale. I exhale.
My natural rhythm a guide on the path,
The ebb and flow of an energetic tide,
Comes in, goes out.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
The space to explore my own spaces,
The pauses between my breaths,
My life between these moments.
Time is my only need,
And for that my only need is breath,
And so I breathe.
