Wait It Out 2013


            Wait It Out

(the parallel between life and yoga)


You do a pose.

It feels awful, incomplete, a strain.

Wait several minutes if you can.

Shift. Modify. Shift again.

To wait it out will get you there.

To wait it out will get you where

You need to be, the pose fulfilled

But always open to refinement.

As you know, nothing is final,

Each adjustment to a bonus;

Consciousness distributed,

Continually feeling for

More more and more,

The more resulting in the new –

A different you.


So if you’re able, wait it out.

The wait itself, wed to your nature,

Has a future unexpected;

Progress in the mind and brain;

New synapses, power

Over limb and fears.

Wait it out.  The clime of waiting

Is exciting:

Minutes, years –

It’s all the same.
