my dancer’s pose – original yoga poetry




if the words endure, they do so because they link the links –


My Dancer’s Pose


between the earth and sky


one foot grounded and

one fist’s fingers



feet and fingers



my lines’

passages through


heart and mind

my thoughts

steadied by my heart’s

beating breathings


feelings warmed


my mind’s acceptance


balance reaching from the


my foot a peaceful planting –


dancing pulses playing waltzes –


between stars inside our patient earth.

tied to my post later this week, “balance & yoga – a tidbit post, # 8,”  the poem “my dancer’s pose” is titled to indicate this is definitely “my” experience

i’m pretentious at times 😉 but not to feel my own dance experience equates (beyond enjoyment and idiosyncratic personal meaning) to “the” dancer’s experience

yet, dancer’s pose (natarajasana) is one of my favorite postures

there’s a stillness mixed with movement in dancers pose i don’t feel as acutely with other standing poses, and this is something i explore each time I practice this

dancer’s pose seems to awaken an awareness in more than one level for me, it passes more easily to my other interests, which seems natural enough, but goes beyond merely happening to also like dance or aerobic movement –

or even beyond running and jogging, at least in what i did of that in my younger days 😉

i’m still working through ideas via my post for later this week

as usual, it’s a process 😉

namaste´- con dios – god be with you
