>while we catch our breath day #9 november PAD chapbook challenge-slow down

>Catch your breath while leaning on the post
Having run for miles with nowhere to go
Circles never seem to end

As in a nightmare where a tiger chases
you down the city sidewalk
Never quite catching up — out of breath
Slow down … with no place to be …

In such a hurry … you race along the widest,
lane in life with no apparent destination
In time the bones will grow weary looking,
for some rest … take a deep breath

  1. >Pamela, yes, it's all in the breathing. Slowing it down, slows the pumping heart, frees the blood to move in ways that once again allow thought. I often tell people to remember to breathe, then have to allow myself that same ease, lol. Keep it up, you are doing just fine,Elizabeth
