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!

Sighting September

Moonlit night

August tried to warn

Us of her impending move.

She sent us cool drafts,

Chilling memos of warning.

Yet, wrapped in sweaters

We missed her exiting.

Undercover of night,

With just the moon as witness,

Fall bearing September came.

BALLOONS

Balloons watercolor drawing by Leonas Designs

Balloons are nothing without

Air and neither are we.

Life

Lesson:

Our lives are

Only as good as our

Next deposit into them.

Seek to aerate your life daily

Life is like a balloon; you must put something into it to get the best possible results. —William Cranch Bond
