I am gathering

Yoga position info-text graphics arrangement and word clouds conHere is a free writing that I wrote at a workshop titled, “The Yoga of Writing and Creativity,” with Albert Flynn DeSilver in May 2016.  We were to pick 1 or 2 words from a list he gave us.  I picked water.


The water within me

gushing, big wave, leaves the heart chamber

rushing with power and energy, explosive crashing

clear blue

white and frothy

running and rushing to momentary stillness

laps back into with quiet calm

not pushing against but a calling

a drawing, a magnetism that isn’t to be fought against

where strength meets vulnerability

release and giving into the moment

free to rush with power

free to retreat with the same energy directed at the release

it looks weak.  it looks less powerful but the strength is built by this lapping back into itself

I am not giving in or giving up

I am gathering.
