We Do Tree Pose To Fall. ~ Michael Mark {Poem}

michaelmarktree

 

We don’t do Tree Pose to stand.

We do it to fall.

To learn to be okay being

in between.

 

B-b-but.

 

But the ego hates falling.

But spirit loves it.

But being in the middle of

Uh  and

Oh is nowhere.

 

Here‘s something to hold onto.

 

Whatever we hold onto—it,

 

she, he, they

are not there.

 

No Buts.

 

Life never stops shifting

around and within us.

 

Be a tree, be a leaf, be perfectly okay

flying, twisting in the winds.

 

Fall in all directions.

 

Ahhh, the upside of wobbly.
