The morning breaks like a storm over us.
We clasp the rails and look wildly into
Each other's plainly panicked eyes.

Far too much going on for one day;
For one week.

I find myself worried that our bodies
Will be hurt by the pressure.

Teach us again to breathe.
You who designed these lungs,
Show us how to fill them softly.

What is the opposite of "Amp it up"?
Do that inside our hearts.

Praying your poetry is met by sweet Jesus' ability to soothe, slowly fill, and direct on his path of peace.
hugs with love!

An exceptionally productive day on all fronts but not without some exceptional stress :-) Thanks for prayers...
