Sunday Wordle -September 30, 2012
Failing to Breathe by Teri. H Hoover
Filled with ambivalence, she slides into the room.
Incense curls quietly, uncornered.
The sticky mat unrolls like a dazed bug.
Breathing out a sigh-
Longing for the flow of holy tenderness,
or water that ripples in the shape of light.
Fear flaps- wingless.
her breath in the counting.
Prayers fall mute
around her buried heart.
It will have wait until tomorrow.
The words from Brenda's Sunday Whirl this week: dazed, incense, ambivalence, empties, holy, scurries,breathing, fear, flaps, prayers, water, tenderness
Notes: Some days the yoga mat is not my friend.
