Jane's poem of this morning!!

Without discussing it, Jane and I both wrote about the breath this morning.  When I spoke with her, she said an old memory had come up.  When I read what I had written, we realized, we were both writing on, focused on, aware of, the breath.  May your day be richly breathed, and your heart, a full gift.

Jane's Poem:

We were on a family car trip through the redwoods.

The motel pool was blue and cold.

I raced my brother, jumped feet first into the deep end.

I was breathless when my toes touched bottom.

Through the dimpled chlorine surface far above my father stood.

His back was turned.

He didn't see me, couldn't save me.

Heart held my breath to surface.

I never told anyone I'd almost drowned.
