Some Dine on Oxygen[1]

I Teem with Chasms of Air[2]

Life is a place of Passing Breath[3]

The Internal Wind Element Comprises Breath[4]

Breathe with Unconditional Breath the Unconditional Air[5]

All Beings Merge into Breath Alone, and from Breath Arise[6]

Give me thy Breath for I am Faint with Common Air[7]

A Breathcrystal – your Unalterable Testimony[8]

We Breath – then Drop the Air[9]

Call Us Scripters of Breath[10]
