Invisible Yogi in the Studio. ~ Michael Mark {Poem}

 buddha statue yogi

I could feel you

helping me today.


As I was toppling from

my crooked inversions,

you pushed me straight.


When my Frog pose squiggled

into a tadpole,

you held me together


with your gentle, firm intention.


My Drishti was a haze.

My Ying lost its Yang.




But with a Bodhisattva’s

10,000 hands whirring,

you cooled me.


With a Buddha’s

sacred mantras,

you calmed my mind.


Never to know your name

or face, I bow.


May my sun salutation bring you

warmth and good health.
