Yoga Teacher (Prompt 13)

I breathe for a living.

Not your ordinary breathing.

Inhalation and exhalation IS life

literally and figuratively, we all respire

modulating between the inhalation uptick

adrenaline unleashed in measured drippings

and the exhalation down cycle release and renewal.

We live between excitation and relaxation, rising and falling,

sympathetic and parasympathetic, flight or flight, rest and digest.

Breath to movement, breath in stillness, breath in slumber, breath til death.

I breathe to live, live to breathe, living breath, I breathe for a living, and so do you.
