30-Day Poetry Challenge: Day 22

Day 22: Wind Poem – If you inhale to be inspired, poetry will be your exhale. When putting pen to paper (or fingers to a keyboard), take deep breaths. Write only when you are exhaling, and stop to breathe in deeply again.

All the breath in the world 
couldn’t calm the nerves 
that are pulled taut 
within me.
