haiku wind

a blustery day
gusts of wind arise, subside
remind me to breathe

prayer flags

  1. Beauty. Though I was sitting tonight and realized breathing wasn’t something I did but something that has a life of its own.

    • Thanks, Kim. The more precise and prosaic sequence went like this: I was sitting in a room by myself at school, critiquing a graduation thesis, when the wind suddenly gusted and subsided; in response I breathed in deeply and released the breath. Then, I thought that this moment might be haiku-worthy.
