On 12.12.12 poet and editor Hawah released the second volume of The Poetry of Yoga, an anthology of contemporary poetry inspired by the practice of yoga.
I have volume one that was released 11.11.11 and I love it. Words can be cherished and within this anthology’s pages are soul felt, wise, guiding poems. I keep this book on hand, referring to it often: to inspire, to steer, and remind me of why I am here. Here are a few of the amazing succinct pieces from volume one:
Are on my feet
I know now
Why your socks are ripped
The draft moves my heart.
In order to describe
this thing to you, I’d need
the thousand beating wings
of wild flocks of words.
Rather, shall I show you
(Speechlessness) – Lisa Rosinsky
Praise is the rusted lure I rise to,
the old fishing line caught in my lip,
scars from rising out of my own current
toward bait that cannot nourish.
-Linda Caldwell Lee
