In The Moment
and post notes and photos about your poem like Constance La France.
I was in yoga class,
in the middle of Salutation To The Sun;
and in the moment, I imagined an hourglass,
drip, dripping- then words came in my head one by one;
and I was putting them together till a line I had spun.
We had moved on to Swan,
oh, such a lovely poise but I was syllable counting;
I was there in class but from reality I was withdrawn,
words kept drifting in my head- in words I was drowning;
we were doing the Cosmic Dancer- ouch pain was mounting.
My lines became more lines,
then we did Camel and Bridge- and a poem was in motion;
I was trying to keep the words within my mind's confines,
and finally we had moved to meditation and I was full of emotion;
my poem and I were floating in the deep blue pacific ocean.
