As the world tilts between breath

And release,

As the sea ebbs and flows

Into peace,

I remember my core

The heartbeat

Of my soul,

Batteries filled again

Making my spirit

Whole.

The green lung of the City

In verdure cape

Blooms anew.

Living room and backyard

It knows just

What to do:

Communal Central Park

Breathing life

Into you.

Hold Up

It is alright

To pause,

To stop,

To dial back the crush

Of too chaotic

Stuff.

Hold up.

It won’t disrupt

Your pace of life,

If you let in a slower breath

That fills your lungs

With calm,

Instead of huff

And puff.

Seal Serenity

The repose of this seal makes me smile … The serene surrender to a nap, oblivious to walkers by; the wannabe-seals of the rocks behind; the temporary real-estate afforded by low tide; the breathing surf that must be humming onto sand; the calm potential for the world around.

Heart Percussion

May the percussion of your heart

Beat not staccato in your core

But breathe legato in your soul

To sing vibrato to your whole.

Sweet Nothings

a spot of shade

In the constant feed of drama

And five-minute-news of all-that’s-wrong

And all that must be done

And all that cannot yet

Or won’t be,

Seek a spot of shade

And a penchant for deep breathing.

Nurture moments of quietude

Of birdsong

Children’s laughter

And the breeze whispering

Sweet nothings to your soul.

Un-Lurch

Unzip yourself from wild-ride news

From tilt-a-whirls of media.

Seek peace amides the reeling waves

Of turmoil and tragedia.

Carve islands of no pitch or roll

So a calm breath can fill ya.
