Yoga Today

Somewhere in the overlap

between summer and fall,

caught in a storm

casting seines of gray rain

across town…

it is a perfect day for yoga.

Meditation and breath

come easily,

as rhythm sets

her pace early

in class.

A lone candle flickers softly.

A monk chants poetry

along sound waves carrying

incense burned,

and a kind voice

encourages us along.

Let go, he says…

open your heart,

as my body sinks

deeply down

into the mat

into the floor

and away.
