To Sit and Breathe

by jimowensjr

To sit and breathe

And just receive,

This world’s great peace

Find inner release.


To walk and listen

And see life glisten,

Creation all ’round;

Hear its sound.


To stare inside

And not divide

The good and strife

That fills a life.


To wait and greet,

This day so brief.

And bask within,

It’s glorious din.


To think of all,

Things big and small,

As life complete;

Precious and sweet.


To fret not in sorrow

For yesterday or tomorrow.

This moment now thrive,

‘Tis today; I am alive.
