Poem: Breathing Peace

Breathing Peace

Breath as a bridge,
reaching to re-connect
a divided self.

Bridges as stitches
across the gaping wound
that pulls apart.

In separating,
a sense of longing
is arbitrarily created.

Conscious breathing,
sharpening awareness
like a blade across stone,

penetrates ignorance,
pierces the divisions,
until unity reigns again.

With pure awareness
throughout breathing,
space expands in all directions.

Until unity knows
only compassion,
with love and in peace.
