Breath

Return

Return
to your breath
when your mind wanders.
Return to your breath.
Return.

Return
to the blank page
the white canvas
the noteless staff
the ballroom floor.
Return to your breath.
Return.

Return
to the place
of your birth,
to the streets
of your childhood
where you played
with abandon.
Return
to the food
of your folks,
to the songs
of your ancestors,
to the ways
of the wise.

Return
someday
to the earth
to the air.
But for today,
Return to your breath.
Return.
