Across the Lake


the summer

when it was warm

sometimes hot

the hills


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

into view.


could always

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
