Ode to Breath©: Word of the Day Challenge—Skitter

Before-word: How often do we think about breathing? Maybe never, right? Because it’s such an innate part of who we are, happening independent of us, we don’t really think about it. Especially as we’ve been under a mask mandate for months, in this moment I pause to give an ode to breath.


Whimsical, as light as feather skittering

Powerful controller of life and death

Rhythmic in-and-out flow

Cannot be voluntarily constrained

Faithful companion

Constant friend

You are my beginning

You are my end
