song of the breath

Written in reverence to one of my favourite yoga practices; awareness of the body’s natural mantra, repeated throughout one’s life.  Such is ajapa japa, the ‘song of the breath’.

**

breathwhat do you see

when you stand by the sea

do you see me in the rise and fall of the waves?

am I your slave, or are you mine?

tied together by time

until death, I am your breath

**

this was originally written as a song, the words vocoded in overlapping harmonic patterns. Listen to it here.
