Necessity

_____________________________________

Yoga is so gentle

Deceiving

The body, challenging the mind

Much of it is mental

Believing

In the strength and calm to find

*

Holding poses for days

Centering

Shoulders with hips, brain with the heart

Gently resisting sways

Entering

A place where fitness melds with art

*

Muscles, mind, and spirit

Strengthening

Quiet peace overtakes unrest

Learning not to fear it

Lengthening

Spine, being kind, opening chest.
