Breath

My breathing apparatus

is very important to me

as I carry my songs upon it.

I do not take gulps of air

before i sing.

I breathe out instead.

My airpipe moves and spins,

It is a funnel for my breath.

Consonants are the travellers of breath.

They travel on vowels.

My body is set in

singers’ pose for life.

Not just for singing.

It feels natural.

Breath can only move like this

if my body is relaxed.

I always remember.

I sit straight in my chair.

My shoulders down and heavy.

My breath is always there.

Waiting to move.
