Breathing In

breathing in

Breathing In by Brooke Shaden:  http://brookeshaden.com/gallery/?page=1&title=breathing_in

 

Each new inhalation
brings life anew
as if coming forth
from the womb.
 
Floating in wisdom,
the breath carries
me in peace and
holds me in
gentle repose.  
Freedom is the
all encompassing
space that
surrounds me.
 
The endless
vibration of
my soul
reverberates
throughout
all of time.
 
And I rest here.
 
In quiet stillness.
 
Merged in joy.
 
With all that exists.

Grace is our hostess at dVerse today and invites us to use the art of Brooke Shaden to inspire our writing.  Gratitude to Brooke Shaden for the use of her amazing and inspiring art work.:  http://dversepoets.com/2014/09/23/poetics-passion-of-brooke-shaden/

  15. The poem is so lovely–tranquil, in fact. Yet the picture seems to contradict the notion of the free breath. The woman is under water. Am I misinterpreting something?

  19. Interesting – I used reverberation in my poem – there is something silent, yet profound in many of her images. I too thought of the womb when I saw this image … A very gentle poem.
