breathing-in-inspireBreathing in, I know I’m breathing in
Breathing out, I know as the
in-breath grows deep, the out-breath grows slow.
Breathing in makes me calm.
Breathing out makes me ease.

With the out-breath, I release.
Breathing in, there is only the present moment.
Breathing out, it is a wonderful moment..
