A Mindful Vacation

I am resharing this poem today in honor of National Relaxation Day. One long slow breath. Try it out.

flashlight batteries

Between each breath
one, maybe two seconds at most,
a tiny space of nothingness.
My passport can’t get me there.
Driving faster, running harder,
multitasking while eating lunch
working later, doing more…
no closer to my destination.

“Where would you like to travel to?” they ask.

someplace between
inhale
and exhale.
