Breath

Hello everyone! I have a little poem to share today, but first I want to note that this week this blog made a milestone! I now have over a hundred followers here, and I just want to say how thankful I am for those hundred+ of you who read my work and by doing so share in the ramblings of my life. Thank you for reading! You are grand! 🙂

 

Breath

 

I held my breath

to keep the cold

from freezing up

my lungs.

 

I held my breath

to keep the wind

from snatching up

my words.

 

I held my breath

to keep the rain

from brightening up

my hope.

 

I held my breath

to keep my heart

from welling up

in joy.

 

I hold my breath

to keep the scent

from running out

my nose.
