Take your time

“Take Your Time” by Nhu-Mai Nguyen. MP3


Take your time–
breathing in, breathing out
Look deeply as you say “This is me!”
You and your breath, you and the air,
As hummingbird and flower,
have always been together.

Take gentle steps–
feel the ground, curl your toes
is there a line between you and this path?
You and your step, you and the earth
As butterfly and blossom,
have never been apart.
