Pozzi's biography also superficially resembles that of another athletic, fair-skinned 20th-century female poet whose life ended prematurely in suicide and whose papers were heavily bowdlerized by her family after death: the American Sylvia Plath. The fraught father-daughter relationship and death-by-suicide also bring to mind the South African poet Ingrid Jonker. The poems in this collection tend to blend into one another, as they are all rather similar, even though their dates of composition are spread out across a nine-year timespan.
These poems are written in free verse and employ scenery-pieces from Pozzi's northern Italian landscape snow-covered mountains, blue alpine lakes, stone houses, trees, birds, horses, etc.
The Moon in Your Breath
The language is stripped-down, haiku-like in its economy. The abrupt juxtaposition of disparate images is also haiku-like: e. All these poems have the same speaker, which seems to be Pozzi herself. They read a bit like diary entries. In most of these poems, there are no "what if"s, no counterfactual suppositions, no complex imaginary constructs.
A Note on Poetry, Breath, Lines and Punctuation – Life of Breath
Nowhere in these poems does Pozzi analyze why she feels the way she feels, verbalize an opinion or an ethical stance, assert a generalization, synthesize disparate components into a theory, enunciate a philosophy. There is no cerebration here, no analytical commentary on life's flux of events, just a dance of perception and emotion: quite lovely, but ultimately for this one reader rather unfulfilling.

Ask yourself what's the difference between either and neither? Better not to choose, Waste your time, it's the breath you'll lose. But, a 'mountain high' can be found; Upward, one may look at a mountain around, But it is here under your feet, the highest earthly ground. Wrap me in What there is to see.

O Breath - Poem by Elizabeth Bishop
White steam from green tea Old school rap echoing across the walls I ordered my own food and drink What I wanted instead of a rushed decision I feel free Starting conversations with strangers Holding good ones with my partner's partner Raising my hand in class and Actually sharing my opinion Without the fear of judgement Holding me back at all.
If love is like breathing Would it feel like I'm dreaming? Misplaced And Misled Aug Breathing You In. You were the crisp fresh air I breathed in Awakening my soul Clean and bearing no weight I effortlessly inhaled you Taking you in Embracing you and everything about you Chilled by your presence Sending goosebumps down my spine You were the opening of my eyes But at the same time You were the foggy air I breathed in Suppressing my soul Foul with a hefty weight Choking as i tried to force you out Slowly extinguishing me Avoiding you and everything about you Sickened by your presence Forcing me to stop breathing You are the sludge coating my lungs Making me want to never breathe again.
A huge weight pushes me down to the ground. A huge burden chained me around the wrist. I torture with every inhale, It's harder and harder to breathe with every exhale. Nylee Oct 3. Breathing Problem. Whilst the world wilts, Sunshine dims, River stills in between, Winds are hurrying The seasons are changing.
And we throw another plastic bag We suffocate our lifestyle Killing our species in style Make it harder to breathe. MJL Mar 7.
I love the quiet coffee time early, before the day begins. Either alone with with my love, just a pause before the new day begins.
Time for introspection. Short breathes, forced. Laboring my breathing has taken up my mind, waking its once sleeping state.

I open up my lungs only to get hit with regret as soon as they open. Fighting a battle with myself is hard, Especially when you are losing. O terrible world, why am i being punished? Val Vik Nov Ujjayi Breathing. When I close my eyes, I'm in my own space. My breath Seanathon Sep Breathing, Swimming, Being. There is more to living Than just a breath Or a heartbeat being Just as there is more to swimming Than the ocean Freshwater streams And the pools filled with meaning Simply put There is always more To be Than being.
I love it when my mind turns off. When my thoughts are no longer thinking and I can finally find myself, simply being, in the words. You know? That peaceful rest where your eyes are full and your mind is quiet with thought?
