Morning Flow!

 

The breath is with me today, as I practice for my experience with the radiation machine.  I need to breathe in evenly, and hold my breath, so that my heart drops and is not radiated along with the breast.   A voice will guide me, as well as a silly pacman face, so I have auditory and visual clues.  Because of this new, expensive machine, I cannot make a mistake.  It will monitor my breath, and shut off if I am inhaling or exhaling at the wrong time.  All of this has me very aware of my breath, so this is what comes this morning. 

 

Rich Breath, Rich Life


Breath,

a bucket I fill with sand,

make sand castles,

to lift,

and texture the beach.

Fairy homes

wash in and out,

cleanse,

 in the life,

of the sea -

 

 

I hone the breath,

pace and meter, texture

with buckets of sand,

fill the sea with the taste of form,

as sand castles

leave the land.

 

I am reminded of a quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.  “He lives most life whoever breathes most air,” but this morning I am with the quality of how we breathe, the texture, and how we form and move the air.  I hum and wash in the tone, find the points, and use it like sand to cleanse. 

 

I tie my breath to the moon

tidal as the sea,

leashed on currents,

like the dance of bees.
