The Open Door

Spread the love

Hush that has long faded from this world
one that allows our bosom to breathe free,
let us bequeath woe to oh wandering stars.
I felt my weary soul kiss blossoming grass,
as eyelids closed and lay restless limbs.

I watch as breath mingled with thought as
though dew that sleeps on petals, dirt that
lines the earth and skies ablaze as fire that
runs though my veins, there’s deeper truth
that burns in dark and dreamy gaze.

Unleash the burden carried willingly until
its time to let go.

    This is an absolute beauty Sanaa. Each stunning image seems to rise from the bottomless depth within. To the poets word is meditation. The poem itself is ‘Yoga’. So lovely! Thank you. Thank you.

    Amazing! Thinking of thought this way helps to clarify how it sullies yoga engagement. Lovely mixing of positives and negatives–breath on thought becoming dirt lining the earth. Gosh.

    Deep breathing (in with the good, out with the bad) … and letting go. Time should be set aside for such daily! Loved your poem.

    Yes, ‘unleashing’… is an important part of the yoga practice and where so much illumination is waiting to be discovered. Loved it, Sanaa!

    “Unleash the burden carried willingly until
    its time to let go.” I like the implication that we carry willingly the burdens and must decide to release them. Good advise
