Let go of something,
somewhere. Use yoga
to become aware, to
touch what lies beneath
the surface of the skin.
Is there tension longing
for release; a knot of
fear so deep and familiar
that you believe its
part of who you are?

Ease into dark corners,
locked rooms, unexplored
hallways. Gain entry
not by force or will
but only by softness.
Enter on the wings of
breath, and turn the
key of self-acceptance
to let go of something

~ Danna Faulds


Enter on the winds of breath and turn the key of self acceptance … oh yes.

  7. Nice. I have a CD recorded at Big Sur and the timing of waves is so like the in and out of breath. This poem reminded me of it. ❤

  8. Letting go always reminds me of this quote:

    “There are only three things you need to let go of ~ judging, controlling, and being right. Release these three and you will have the whole mind and twinkly heart of a child.” ~ Hugh Prather, Notes to Myself

  12. Hmmm … we are always moving internally. There is grace here.. in a simple rise and fall or breath or a welcome bowel movement. Seriously! Limbs are peripheral 😉


  13. A lovely – and ever timely – sharing, Val. Thank you. 🙏
