One Breath

A quiet ding and a soft padding of bare feet

On the wooden floor

Bathed in sunlight

The quiet hush of breath taken together


Breathing as one


The soft words spoken over

The quiet breathing


Something awoke in me

Listening to the melodic words

Of the yogi


A quickening of the heart

A pricking of the ears

A tightening of the toes


The beauty

Majestic and fierce

In a simple meditation poem


Hours later

I take one breath

One breath, a spark of inspiration


Pen to paper

Letters flow into words

A poem is created

From one breath.
