DAY 63 - Yoga

 photo by Carolyn Coles at Flickr

my body,
a stiff, dry sponge
waiting for a splash of water
to bring back its soft, resilient nature

yoga is that water
absorbing, penetrating, expanding
my breath, fuller and more relaxed
muscles calmed
connecting tissues no longer taut

each day,
the choice to moisten my sponge
readying it for its role in the day ahead

each day,
the choice to leave it parched
