"steadily inhaling and exhaling" would work just as well.

Yes that would work but I was sticking to 8 syllables per line until the last line of each stanza.

For Charlie

So this is a rewrite of a previous work. I am always doing rewrites, usually I just edit my old work but I decided to start posting some of my rewrites as new works. I think it is beneficial to see the how a piece evolves.

I close my eyes and feel the breath
Of life, steady, inhale, exhale,
Immersed in tranquil quietude
Doors and windows open 2 comments

My mind begins to drift in seas
Of calm, contemplating, aware,
I hear in the sweet solitude
Truth and inspiration

I sense my heart pulse steadily
A mystery, me, revealing,
I grasp here in this silent world
My rhythm is unique
