Breathing room

Over time
we unknowingly
share each
other’s lives —
your breath
recycled in mine —
all words aired
out under one
hemispheric
skyline.

    I love how the simplicity and conciseness of this make you slow down to take each line in.

  2. here’s another interesting fact: scientists think we actually absorb cells of people to whom we live closely with–into our own bodies! They’ve discovered mixed DNA sequences or some such–and that’s all I remember, but I am pretty sure it is right. Freakily weird, and emphasizing the need to be around positive peeps.

    Lovely poem, Tyler. You have a gift with word choice. You are Mother Nature’s poet laureate. 🙂

    • Thank you, Karen! I’m not surprised. We share earth, air, water and pillow talk with our significant other, why not throw DNA into the menagerie? It’s ironic b/c we are mutants born by random evolution, creatures of circumstance, spaced in time, though housed in the same big bedroom. I hope you have a wonderful Friday and relaxing weekend, my friend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

  3. I love the awareness of this poem, it feels very in touch with reality….

    • Thank you, my friend! You scribe a keen observation. My poetry centers itself around a sense of place, words and feelings attuned to the moment. I hope you have a wonderful Friday and relaxing weekend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

    this is beautiful…. and so true, makes you stop and think about your breathe… 😉

    • Thank you, Deb! Your kind and thoughtful words are always appreciated! Glad your creative spirit connected with my message. We are all parts recycled back into the whole world, air and earth, flesh and bone mingling together, locked in a timeless dance, steps planted with purpose. Hope you have a wonderful Friday and relaxing weekend, my friend! Keep up the inspired work on your blog!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂
