“a beginner’s view : the intent of this blog is to incrementally build a body of thought that works toward integrating various topics, yoga, fitness, and the arts – it’s a process…”
wild music – original arts & love poetry
– if the words endure, they do so because they link the links –
split to rosy glows
that draw our
then our breath
then our heavings
out to our mind saying
the shaking joining
shudders shakes the shutters
a new world is opened
the breathing eases
but the rosy glow
has left its
you’re in love

today’s post is in response to a different prompt, issued weekly or so i think, from a poetry site called dVersepoets.com
this week’s prompt, “wild!” from mark kerstetter, one of a group running the site, was led off by one of the better essays i’ve read about art and wildness and our abilities to live, or not live, a more civilized life –
references are made to various artists and contemporary happenings and tied to a question we also often see in yoga, what to do with the wild inside us, in a way to help us evolve as better people
mark himself spoke a little about his own experiences so far –
“My heart was a vast, wild, pathless place where I could wander forever and get lost. If I was to explore my heart, I had to do it with intelligence and discipline…”

i also need to give a big thanks for the inspiration from emmanuelle of plans on a comet, who wrote a nice piece for her music-regular, music matters, at the magazine of yoga — (07.23.19 – please note, Magazine of Yoga is no longer available, but Emma can be reached on her site at http://emmalambert.com/ & on FB https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=726062556 )
her piece also has me working up a post, which initially i was gonna put up this week, but is, as usual, taking me longer than i’d expected 😉
actually her piece on the immediacy of music and dance and song in our lives, ties in with dverse’s “wild” prompt, in the sense that it speaks to how to access that wilder portion of ourselves, while dverse address the what if we don’t acknowledge it
interesting – two pieces of the puzzle we are 😉
in integrating yoga fitness and the arts, for me, i seem to have swung heavily (back) into the arts, and left the physicalities behind 😉
but that’s been a life pattern for me, so i’m not worried
experience tells me things will swing back –
and the past year also shows me :
i’ll be bringing more of what i touch, from all my interests, deeper into my eternal (its seems) swing into balance
balance, as i wrote about recently, seems to be a process, rather than a stopping point 😉

And from my own work, one of my favorite short stories combining yoga, Paris, and family from grandkids to grandparents – Eiffel Tower Pose on Family Yoga Day 😊
No sense of early winter’s cold, frosting the glass outside, touched her.
Silently, like silk, a view of the Eiffel Tower, outside the massive clear window behind her, oblivious so many were watching, she ran the flat of her foot up, slowly, along the inside of her other leg, held calmly, taut to the floor. Her arms seemed released by the sensations she felt, her legs bare, her arms unfurling above her head, rising to meet the muted, early evening light.
Opening her eyes, she welcomed the strangers staring at her.
Her modest, thin-stretch outfit, breathed and smiled with her.
Family yoga class had begun.
This was fun already!
Blooming in tree pose, the instructor confirmed Arturo’s and Rosetta’s decision, themselves senior fitness instructors, to try the experimental, once-a-month, family yoga class, while they were still all there, visiting in Paris.
In an impossibly rare treat, they were enjoying the time between the big holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas, together in Paris.
