breathe energy deep nourishment

A friend sent me a package a few weeks ago. It was such a surprise. So packed with love. So for no reason, the best reason of all.

This lotion was one of the treats in the box. I’ve been keeping it on the bookshelf next to my desk – a muse, a comfort, a reminder of being supported, an in-breath and an out-breath, and now, a poem where I least expected one:

breathe
energy
deep nourishment
body creme

breathe
energy
deep nourishment
afternoon nap

breathe energy
deep nourishment
run with a girlfriend
push it up the hill

breathe energy
deep nourishment
say yes to the free concert ticket
‘bye girls!

breathe
energy
deep nourishment
fat slice of avocado

breathe energy
deep nourishment
noontime yoga class
savasana starts early

breathe energy
deep nourishment
give away your gifts
and then, someday, raise your rates

breathe
energy
be amazed
at what you begin receiving

breathe
energy
in whatever way
makes sense for you

what does it feel like
to be yourself
so you

not too much of anything
not not enough of something
a one-of-a-kind container
of stories and images

I saw you today
I basked in your presence
I soaked in your light
and was transformed
