Yoga Gone Awry

I stretch deeply,
I bend and twist.
My rear and ear
Suddenly kiss!

Human pretzel,
Body and mind.
Relaxation
I do not find.

LOL! Good to know not all yoga experiences are peaceful and relaxing. Cute poem, love the "rear and ear". :D

Liz Steinglass said...

This is exactly why I avoid yoga.

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Joy! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Jama! Sometimes yoga can be a real "pain". LOL! =)

Bridget Magee said...

I know, Liz! It all depends on the instructor/DVD. Some are good, some not so much. =)

Betsy Hubbard said...

Great! That made me laugh :)

Tamera Will Wissinger said...

I'm with the others - I got a chuckle from this one, Bridget. Thanks for the bit of levity!

Janet said...

Too fun! You are much more flexible than I -- no rear-ear dalliances here, I fear. :-)

Buffy Silverman said...

Lots of fun, Bridget--love your human pretzel. (When I first took yoga many years ago my heart would race as soon as the relaxation started. These days I'm so tired by the time we get to the relaxation that I come close to nodding off.)

Your topics are just delightful, Bridget. Love the 'human pretzel' aspect with ear touching some mysterious body part. Great poem.

Cute, Bridget. I'm a long time yoga person. People can take it too seriously. There's no shame in falling over, finding your rear in where you weren't expecting it, or looking like a pretzel. Your poem captures the playfulness of yoga!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Betsy! I'm glad I helped lighten your day. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Tamera! Me+Yoga=Quite the Spectacle =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Janet! Your meaning is clear! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Buffy! I know I've had different experiences with yoga at different points in my life. I even took pre-natal yoga when I was 6+ months pregnant - now THERE'S a vision to ponder. LOL! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Linda! Yoga can be delightful...or not, depending on the day. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Laura! I love yoga - I'm just not so good at it sometimes. But I always come back for more. Sometimes my 9 y/o does yoga with me in the living room. Love. =)

fun poem...and so true :)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! I'm glad you like my poem and that you could relate. Yoga can be an acquired activity. =)

Seems a little too familiar for a lot of people. Funny!
