Ripple Effect

My breath comes in with a crisp cool inhalation.
and I let it go out into the world  
carrying some of my body’s warmth.
I am hoping my warm exhalation
can be the catalyst for something good,
however small.

I walk about, so small in the grand scheme of things,
breathing in the sharp coolness of the world
and breathing out warm love and good energy.

It is undetectable, 
infinitesimal...
this tiny ripple in reality
that I create with my breath,
but what if...
what if we all went around
exhaling love and good energy?

So meaningful.
Pleased you are writing
where I can once again
read your words...

Ernestine, Thank you. I`m glad to be back writing my own thoughts and connecting with my blogging friends. It is much more centering and meaningful than writing papers or meeting deadlines! ;)
