Breathing in Life

Breathing, woman, freedom, life

Breath is a blessing

Our life is but a vapor

Thankful for each breath

Senryu

If you have ever lost your breath for a moment I am sure you can relate to this poem.

Having recently had an asthma attack that literally took my breath from me for a few seconds was very scary and made me realize how precious each breath I take is.

Life is short, breathe it in and give thanks for every breath!

Don’t Just Survive—Thrive!

Orange Poppy plant in bloom

Don’t just be content

To bloom where you’re planted

Thrive! Flourish! Rise!

Always be seeking to grow

Expand your territory

Tanka

My little orange poppy plant is so amazing. This is the third time it’s bloomed this Spring. Every time I think it’s done, it surprises me with more blooms! It’s a Thriver!
