Small Breaths


Psalm 62:9 (NLT)

From the greatest to the lowliest –

All are nothing in his sight.

If you weigh them on the scales,

They are lighter than a puff of air.


Small Breaths


A puff of air

No more,

Scarcely even a breath,

Our days are nothing.

We are born.

We live,

Hardly even a small breath

Exhaled quickly

For the Divine.

Then we are still.


Yet, he esteems

Us; small

Breaths. Gathering us he

Raises a current.

Zephyrs trusted

To carry

Gossamer seeds. Moving them

To good soil;

O Breath of God

Your breath in us.
