day 25: pose.

I know that when I do this pose, I feel like I am giving my thoughts permission to drip out of me and then when I am ready to emerge out of downward facing dog, I can see the puddle of words and cracked worries beside me. Then, I sop them up with imaginary paper towel and walk away.

I have been trying to fall in love with yoga for a long time and I think we are just still getting to know each other (again). Sometimes, it is best to wait before making such grand announcements. While my body presses into these poses, I feel like my bones are making poetry. My breaths are filling up the room just like I imagine my words take up a page. These poses are medicinal and contemplative and forgiving.

I am working toward finding my way back in.

One response to “day 25: pose.

  1. How appropriate that “Day 25” of your thoughts should arrive on Christ’s Birthday…

    …it made me stop and contemplate… consider… pause to reflect. It is a shame that I don’t allow myself such moments more often. And then again, if I did have many more such moments they wouldn’t be as special.

    You are such a wonderful writer. You make me think and appreciate the good in my life.

    Thank you!
