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had moved on to Swan, oh, such a lovely poise but I was syllable counting; I was there in class but from reality I was withdrawn, words kept drifting in my head- in words I was drowning; we were doing the Cosmic Dancer- ouch pain was mounting.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. ____________________________ August 4, 2017 Quintain(English)/In The Moment Copyright Protected, ID 926890 Written for the contest, English Quintain sponsor, Sara Kendrick Eleventh Place

Poetic meditation as deep as the blue pacific ocean! I think in syllables, love words and meanings, and ponderings. Love your quintain, Constance!
