NaPoWriMo 2019, Day 8 – Doing Yoga

Doing yoga does me good
Although I wait for the class as I would for a therapy session
Relying on its imaginary security,
its beyond-the-everyday thrust of wisdom,
and its speechless softness.
This can’t be good, can’t be healthy.
One day I’ll wake to the sound of wind chimes
And see, for real, where I stand and what I need.

Have Faith, Day 24

Day 24 A Faith Poem
The hardest favour to ask,
“Have faith”
Blindly, against all hope.
“Have faith”
Waiting patiently despite all facts.

A favour I’m not prepared to do.

Day 14 Work Conquers All

“Work conquers all”, they say,
And I walk tall,
Or I bend low
My eyes tearful
Of failure despite this
Wisdom they have carved
Within my memory,
Despite the grit I feel
For being so imperfect.

Work might conquer all.
Yet, who’s to specify what’s “all”
In every person’s life?
