Breathe

Written for:  Elizabeth’s Creativity Challenge – Day 31

Word for today:  Breathe

In class of strength
and balance, each exercise
is a lesson in inhaling
and exhaling  at proper
times. At home I listen
to meditation.   Sitting
in my chair, I inhale deeply,
exhale slowly.   Counting
breaths is helpful
in keeping anxiety level
down, heart beat slower.
Remember to let go of all
negative thoughts each time
you exhale.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    That letting go on the exhale, might be the most important part,
