Directions to My Version of Yoga “Happy Baby”

lay down flat on the bed

pull knees to chest and link arms underneath them

roll from side to side

smile as you do it or laugh out loud

do twenty rolls in all

at end reach hands between your legs and hold inside of each ankle

just like a happy baby ‘till you topple to one side or the other

postscript: Thich Nhat Hanh says

“A smile is yoga of the mouth”

wish I may – wish I might have the wish

I wish tonight – thought of magic

thought of power – I would wish for

strength woven with peace for

self and others near

and far this day

this moment

now – just

The Minute

Take a minute. In the middle of the unknown, of

the anxiety, of the loneliness, take a minute. Literally.

Time it. When the second hand of your watch reaches

twelve, let the minute start. Look away. See how long

a minute is. Breathe. Feel the unknown and the anxiety

and the loneliness drift away. It’s long isn’t it? The

breaths fill me up. I’m glad I took it——the minute.
