Real Meditations: The Microbiome

Dear READERS:  Some people like the meditations and some people don’t.  Just like File Folders.  I will continue with them. (But not with File Folders)  YOU NEVER HAVE TO READ any poems that don’t appeal to you.  EVER.


Breathe In.  Many people seem to be saying the word Microbiome.  Especially in the alternative community.  Breathe Out.  I didn’t know what the word meant .  You probably didn’t either.  Breathe Out.  I like  many words.  Words like escalator.  Breathe In. I don’t like the word microbiome very much.  Although there’s nothing intrinsically wrong with it.  Breathe In.  Here’s the definition in case you have a vague idea:  a community of microorganisms: bacteria, archaea, fungi, viruses, that inhabit an organism.  That organism being YOU.  Breathe Out.  You don’t have to know this.  Not really.  Breathe In.  For some reason every single day I get advice about my microbiome.  Breathe Out.  Advice can be endless.  Breathe In.  Today’s  from Dr. Pedram Shojai famous expert (how did he get my email?) Take a Probiotic Supplement with Prebiotics and Polyphenols.  Breathe Out.  You don’t have to Do Anything with your Microbiome or anything else.  Breathe In. You can even forget the word altogether.  Breathe Out. It’s gone just like that.


Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
