If I am not [true to myself], I miss the point of my life, I miss what being human is for me.

Gong Bath


lying in shavasana 
the last brush of the gong reverberated through the room
my being seemed to leave my mat
swirling above my prostrate body
thank-you for that moment of other worldliness

Waiting


once I was so cold 
through and through
it was a coldness of soul
I was reptilian
unable to warm from the inside
I lay in a patch of sun
waiting
waiting
to be warmed from the outside

Because of You

in the woods
all alone

a needle 
swooped
enjoying the ride

not yet strewn
to the forest floor

thank-you 
for offering
a bit of web

without you
and 
because of you

i fell to pieces
in recognition 
of
my whole

I Guess I Will Dive In

Sketched from a google image.
'You cannot find peace by avoiding life.'
-Virginia Woolf

It is easy to hunker down and let life pass by, but I feel the time has come to engage more fully.

I Heart Kundalini Yoga


'May the long time sun shine upon you,
all love surround you,
and the pure light within you guide your way on.'

Under My Trowel Between My Boots



who knew an earthworm
could glisten so
as it twists atop
its earthen stage
iridescent splendor
soft as a pearl
