Rest

Torrent of blood charges the veins

loudly hungry meekly sated

Breathe.

Pulsing wet cheeks, a deliberate choir

of noise from dry-throated angels

Sing.

Sculpt the air with restless fingers

praise and damn with swollen motions

Rest.

      1. That’s funny (not ha-ha)… I’ve been trying to do the same thing each morning with some breathing exercises and light yoga. I’m learning to get by on less sleep than I’d like, but I do appreciate those weekend naps! πŸ™‚

      2. I haven’t been able to convince Randy to try yoga. He’s so afraid that it will trigger a spasm. But the breathing is working well. Both are healthy practices for life in general. πŸ™‚

      3. FYI – thanks for the note on the spammed comment. For some reason WP won’t let me reply to it (?) so I’m replying here. I get spammed all the time, so no worries at all πŸ™‚
