Short Meditation Poems
In/Out by Thich Nhat Hanh
Breathing in, I know I am breathing in. Breathing out, I know I am breathing out.
Breathing in, my in-breath has become deep. Breathing out, my out-breath has become slow.
Breathing in, I feel calm. Breathing out, I feel at ease.
Breathing in, I smile. Breathing out, I release all my worries and anxieties.
You may shorten it to:
In, out
Deep, slow
Calm, ease
Smile, release
Practice each line for as long as you wish.
