Haiku Heights – Breathe

I hold my breath tight

My lungs have to work very hard

There is no calmness

**********************************************************************

I sit yoga-style

Trying to breathe slowly, calm

It makes my heart sing

***********************************************************************

Unable to speak

I am caught up in worry

Of all things unknown

************************************************************************

The last breath I take

Will be for my children’s love

They complete my world

************************************************************************

Breathe and lift the sky

Soar with the blue and red birds

Sing along with them
