Deep breathing,
Soulful breaths, the kind that help,
Like those after a good run,
Either super hard or steady going,
Breaths with a hold,
Letting the chemistry change,
Allowing the tension to release,
Helped by the smell of the sea,
An ocean breeze
Supported by the golden rays of a setting sun.

A change,
Good for the soul, helping the mind,
Deep breaths in an Adirondack chair
Shoulders relaxing, neck muscles loosening
The sighs meaning nothing,
Saying everything about the way it is by the ocean,
Calming, restoring, anchoring
An inner peace
To the mayhem we’ve been experiencing,
A reset of life’s rhythms.
