Friday 55-Child's Pose

 It has been a long day
inhale...exhale
Roll out the mat
inhale....exhale.
Kneel into the child's pose,
inhale...exhale.
Hear the children in the distance
inhale...exhale.
Forehead to the floor
inhale...exhale
Watch through the small gap between your feet
inhale...exhale
They are fighting for a toy
unclench teeth...
inhale...exhale...

Somedays require alot of inhaling and exhaling. Sometimes I have to run or swim when the breathing isnt enough

happy Friday my friend

If you read my 55 you will hear the exhaling and intermittent chuckles

I'm terrible at yoga. I tend to lose my balance and giggle too much.

There is nothing peaceful about the child's pose, regardless of who is in it.

Sometimes ignoring it is the best you can do.

LOL! Some days serenity is harder to reach than others.

It would take a true master to overlook fighting children at my house. Beer helps, now if I could combine it with yoga I may be on to a real money making idea.

Fantastic! Loved it!

My 55 is up - be it later than normal.

Kat said...

Mmm-hmm. I know. My boys always want to do yoga with me. I try to tell them it doesn't exactly work the same way then. ;)

Chidren are full of life, but that rarely translates to serenity.

Fun 55, Lime!

I love this! Really concise but descriptive.

Also I liked your post about gtandmothers but I am too lazy to comment on more than one post in a day. It takes too long for my cell phone to load the comment pages!

Ps..happy birthday...isn't your birthday coming up soon?
