The strength in my body comes from my commitment to it
Respecting it’s nature, honoring it’s edges..
The physical body simply is...
a bundle of bones, water, tissue, and genes,
my decision to Bless it, Honor it, Listen to it,
and how to feed it are all my choice.
What will I choose today?
What will my body teach me today?
For me, I face the sun and say, “thank you, thank you for this day!”
I move and stretch my body with my breath in a prayer for this day.
A prayer for those who are hurting, a prayer for peace, perhaps even
a little prayer for me to live this day fully.
The light of the day emerges as the wild turkeys feed on spring’s new growth,
birds busily gather to renew their nests,
a red tail swoops for it’s breakfast delight as the poor field mouse surrenders to what’s next.
A cacophony of bird song unfolds as the sun rises higher in the horizon,
Geese honk overhead as they scout for a place to rest.
Oh, the Blessings of this day as I roll up my yoga mat!
Tell me about you?
