    Take it in
    the air around you
    hold it
    hold it
    feel it fill you
    count to ten
    then slowly
    slowly
    release it
    let it go
    let it flow
    out again
    to return
    in
    just at the moment
    when
    you need another
    breath of life

    Lovely personification of breath...this should teach us all to be more thankful for each moment we have on this Earth. Thanks for the reminder.
