A Meditation in Three Breaths

Remember to breathe

– In

A pull of cold air

That brings a touch of winter

To the back of your throat

 

– Hold –

Eyes closed

Remember that you are strong:

A woman holding all the world together with both hands.

 

Out –

A spring flow of warmth

That pushes away your poisons

And takes them as a life-gift to the trees

 

– Wait –

A moment of emptiness

A withdrawal into yourself

To a comforting calm

 

– In

The rising of your chest

That pushes up your heart’s chamber

And expands your being

 

– Hold –

Eyes closed

Remember that you are brave:

A survivor who has grown from every frightening moment past..

 

Out –

The slow release of your body

Your shoulders guided to rest

In a return to your very first state

 

– Wait –

A moment of body silence

Muscles untaxed

Falling to the bounds of skin and tendon

 

– In

The earth filling you

With the smell of its work

And the breath of the trees coming back to you.

 

– Hold –

Eyes closed

Remember that you matter as you are:

A hand-crafted child of god, whose thoughts and skill and love move the world

 

Out –

You filling the earth

With the taste of your spirit

Carried on the lungs’ deepest offerings

 

– Wait –

A moment of knowing

That you are Creation’s creature,

Your nature a part of nature

 

Remember to breathe
