I’m Holding My Breath

hoarfrostsprucebranch

I’m holding my breath, lest it melt all your silver,

I’m exhaling slow, lest excitement consume;

I’m slowing my heart, lest its beats quell your music,

I’m stilling my soul, lest its vibrance entomb.

*

Some moments are meant to be savoured, slow…

    Without a doubt one of your best, Emily… It holds me entranced and I keep reading it over and over so I can ponder its many facets… πŸ™‚

    Very Nice. Inspiring wording.

    Savour slowly – enjoy it more!

  5. Beautifully said Melody. With the rushing of modern life we sometimes forget to take time to enjoy the little things.

  6. Melody, I definitely “savored” this lovely post! πŸ˜‰

      You didn’t turn blue or anything? πŸ˜‰ Don’t hold your breath TOO long, that’s my sage advice…

      • Funny that you should warn me not to hold my breath too long… I don’t use a tripod when I take photos – so I hold my breath thinking it will help me keep still. πŸ˜‰ I might keel over one of these times. πŸ™‚

        Ha ha ha! I just tried that trick with my gorgeous sunset tonight – I haven’t checked whether I was successful or not!! πŸ˜‰

      • I’m glad the sun was visible in your part of Canada… I’m itching to take another try at a sunset shot. But my cold has kept me housebound, anyways, until today. I’ve got my camera trigger finger ready now! ( and my breath holding – between sneezes!)
