Finding my center

Finding my center of balance
I wiggle
wobble
and fall
face down onto the floor
Face pancake
Face red, face stinging, face making mountains of wrinkles,
Face broken into tears.

“It’s okay. It’s okay to fall. You don’t have to be perfect,
Try again.” My yoga teacher says,
her soothing voice sashaying
through my center,
finding my center.

I stand,
Tree position,
left foot against my right thigh,
palms together at my heart,
feeling my center.

My center is rooted,
steady,
and stretches like branches
through my head and legs.

  1. Hi! Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem. 🙂

    I guess that you are a fellow practitioner of yoga and meditation. For me, the thing that centers me the most is good music, so I would like to share some with you in the hopes it will help you find your inner peace: https://soundcloud.com/xumbalu/sets/sounds-of-gouni-the-journey-pt-1

    This truly isn’t just for the sake of promotion, but being involved in the process of sharing the “zen” we all need in our life. With that said, it would really mean a lot to hear your thoughts about our sound and to help us achieve our mission by sharing this link.
    Also, for any questions, feel free to contact me on ivana@xumbalu.de

    Kind regards

    1. Thank you for your comment 🙂 I checked out your song and I found the general sound to be beautiful and calming, I think it would be even better with a more dynamic melody. 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
