Failing to Breathe

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.
Losing
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.
