A Long, Slow, Deep Breath...

Eyes closed

Unforced quiet

A long slow deep breath

Savoring the aroma of the moment

His presence surrounding me

Light and yet, heavy

Quiet and yet, screaming

Invading the very depths of my being

Here in this place


I sense what seems fleeting

Remains everlasting


Draw in

A long, slow deep breath

Life force

Strength for the moment

Strength for the day

Strength for eternity

Begins in the long, slow deep breath

Of Him

I am joining in with Five Minute Friday over at . This is when you write for 5 minutes - no more and no less.  Each week is a new topic and today it was deep breath.  Check out the link and see what others have written!

  1. Yes. That pause and deep breath has to happen for me to refocus at times. Nice five minute post!

  2. I love this "strength...Begins in the long, slow deep breath of Him." A beautiful piece for Five Minute write-up!

  3. Hey Denise.....what u wrote does seems straight from the heart...I think you might agree when I say that when we "freely associate" ( a term used by Sigmund Freud) we do say what lies in the inner depths!!
    simply beautiful:)
