Sit
Still
Sit very still
More still
I Notice only 
The movement
In my breath

I am still
Very still
More still
Only my breath 
Moves
In....out
Passing in 
through my 
nose
Moving 
out
of my lungs 
emptying

My eyes 
Closed
Gently 
A slight flutter
A movement of 
light...
My eyes closed 
more tight
Bring me inside 
to myself 
My heart 
movement 
rhythm 
life 

My lungs 
expand 
contract
Movement 
rhythm 
life 

Filling 
emptying
pulsing
throbbing 
Movement of 
life 

Breath in
Breath out
Taking with it 
on its wings 
what needs 
to GO

GO...

OH The relief
the out breath brings 
taking with it 
the sadness 
on its wings 
Oh sadness GO
GO
Be free of me 
Be free of 
sadness
for this moment 
for now
Oh if only 
for now

The space 
The open space 
for my in breath 
bringing with it 
joy
into my lungs 
Embrace 
welcomed
the joy 
Colourful 
vibrant 
so bright 
so light 
so lite

Breath 
bring me 
into the opportunity 
within 
the joy filling 
my lungs 
my source 
my life.

Go the sadness 
Come the joy 
dance, dance
in the out
empty and fill
The rhythm of the 
light, so lite
my lungs 
my life.

Sit still
very still 
more still 
eyes closed 
deep dive within 
I feel my breath 
the only movement 
of life 
this moment 
ME

STILL - written today the 19th April 2020, post an online workshop with David Whyte. He inspires me to seek myself, open, and express me...We have layers of sadness that block our joy. Find them, be present with them...invite them to leave on the wings of your out breath, and invite joy in on your in breath. Joy is colourful, the joy in the gift of life.
