Being Breath

stories from the wilderness of everyday life

Metamorphosis

 

Metamorphosis in
watercolor paints - my new obsession
face turned towards the sky
feet fiercely kissing the earth
she exhales every drop of what she no longer needs
 pausing
and releasing
a bit more beyond comfort
then purposefully inhales
o p e n i n g
and 
transforming.
---
This is my yoga, my life.  Breath after breath.
Allowing the decluttering to continue.
Releasing the martini glasses and the faux parties I dream of having, the vinyl records and the belief that he is contained within those, the KitchenAid and the feelings that health is contained within it.
Pausing
and releasing the ensuing guilt and desires to buy newer, better martini glasses and the gut-wrenching fears that the next shoe is about to drop.
Inhaling
pure awareness of my soft belly that rolls over my pants top and noisy, precious children and my own judgments & hypocrocies that pepper my days.
I am transforming.

Namaste.
