Breath (a prayer)

Breath
(a prayer)

thank you for the ability to breathe
to breathe deeply
to center oneself in the present
to experience peace — calm

thank you that the divine name
is the sound of breathing
yod-hey-vav-hey
your very essence is described
as breath-wind-spirit

thank you for refusing to show yourself
in the medium of power
earth-quake-gale-and-fire
but only in a gentle breeze to caress
my face and fill my being

thank you for breath

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
