i assume, since i believe in process, that i’ll get better at this as i go 😉
Across the Lake
when it was warm
pressed against the sky
in slate blues, blue-greys
shades of distance.
the leaves have turned
the sun has shifted
and i see
grey-green shrubs and
a road cutting a slant
the nearest lake-hills.
i can climb the hills
with my eyes
The air has
The light cuts
the drier air more
setting the soft shrubs
see across the lake
but i see
differently now. I see new.

a gift from vermont’s move into fall weather
besides the fall foliage color of course 😉
there’s a sense of settling in now, by everyone –
even the large tailed grey squirrels are noticeably slower, large uncracked nuts and bits of bark held dearly in their jaws
back in my parts of texas, around austin, the length of houston to galveston, folk are just now being able to get outside again, breath unheated air, and let the kids out 😉
yoga’s good about that, teaching people to feel the changes in simply being
which is simpler said than done , i know! 😉
emmanuelle, finding her own way on the roads between belgium and france, said as much, in asking, “is there such a thing as balance?” in her recent article On Balance
nature has a way of bringing that question to the fore…
yoga has an all-weather way of keeping it there…
stretch, breathe, and let the eyes smile 😉
do you hear the winds moving?
can you feel the sun glow?
namaste´- con dios – god be with you
