Tapping Into The Source

Photo: Pinterest Free Domain

 

Yogi-posture, ramrod straight,
legs crossed in yin-yang shape.
Hands held gently at rest on the knees,
while fingers posed in mudras
help to focus energies.
Eyes closed softly,
attention on the breath,
allowing it freely to tap into the Source.
Follow the breath,
it will show you the way,
the truth lies within you
beyond this illusory play.

Sharing this poem that I wrote shortly after beginning my blog (it’s a repeat).  Join me as I host Open Link Night over at dVerse Poets.  The doors to the pub open at 3PM Thursday.  Share any ONE poem of your choosing.

  6. You write about this so serene and calm. And it is! I don’t get into all the postures and such, but I do sit still and tap into the source of things all around me. Still, silent, listening…lovely write Gayle.

    Not in good enough shape to do yoga anymore, but I love your poetic rendition of it; certainly agree that the real answers for each of us are within–solutions are an inside job.

  12. I hear the back posture is critical for yoga and meditation. It helps the breath flow more freely.

  13. I have never managed Yoga, I am not very bendy….but I do practice meditation and I thought this was very accurate.

  20. Thanks for starting us off on a meditative course…a good reminder for me to return to yoga class. It helps dealing with all things in life and I think we all need to find relaxation these days.

    The opening lines immediately conjure a pose very accurately of one in meditation. One is more or less sitting next! Great wordcraft Gayle!
