I stretched my body

noticing the knots

of course… in the neck

and the shoulder

 

I saw them tinted

in a grayscale

 

Breathed into at them

a deep long breath

breathe…

a breeze of compassion

 

aahhh…

 

The knots soften

with the warmth of a breath

as if my entire body

becomes embodiment

of love

 

Orchestrating with

The kindness of a breath

 

Filled with love…

 

I wonder my body is

like a community

of our kinds

 

Why can’t we breathe into

at the knots that I see gray

with the kindness of a breath

 

Noticing what are

the knots we have within

listen to my body

Be kind to the suffering

be gentler to the fumed

the upset and the desperate

 

Breathing into at them

with the warmth of compassion

and listen

 

It’s because

they are part of

us, our body
