Gatha

Breathing in, I know I am breathing in.Breathing out, I know I am breathing out.

Breathing in, I see myself as a flower. Breathing out, I feel fresh.

Breathing in, I see myself as a mountain. Breathing out, I feel solid.

Breathing in, I see myself as still water. Breathing out, I reflect all that is.

Breathing in, I see myself as space. Breathing out, I feel free.

From Touching Peace by Thich Nhat Hanh
