A new hope with every breath

Updated: Jan 22

Each life begins and ends with a breath and so does each living moment. Becoming aware of the quality of each breath provides clues about how I and those around me might be feeling.


Is the breath being held or released?

Is the breath shallow or deep?

Is the breath fast of slow?


And from this awareness, choices appear. And from choice anything is possible.


Here is a poem I wrote for the 2018 Advent Blog series that is published on Twitter each year.


Every breath I take


Breathing out


A hollowing

Releasing

Settling

Reflecting


Feeling


The pause


Holding


Waiting


For air again


Breathing in


A heightening


Learning

Connecting

Reaching


Moving


The pause


Holding


Waiting


For rest again


Every breath a moment of hope

Every pause a moment of choice


23,400 breaths a day


8,409,600 breaths a year


From the hollows and hopes of each breath I’m alive!

To my oft forgotten body I give a joyous high-five
