Yoga Theme

The 10 a.m. Yogini

Every morning
I become a mountain,
rising like the ash
of Pheonix from deep sleep,
I awaken myself from
ankles to knees.
There's a tree outside
my window, a Weeping Willow.
I use it as study,
push my hands toward
the sky, and sway like palm.

Written for a prompt at Poets United.


  1. From the mountain, a natural tree grows. I appreciate you showing the parts of this unfolding. Quite lovely.

  2. Ah, to rise like a phoenix each morning, look skyward and sway like palm. Lovely!

  3. Its lovely to to rise like a phoenix each morning!!❤️

  4. Oh Stacy, this is so beautiful! SO nice to see you at Poets United. We missed you!

  5. How beautifully this poem reads, just like waking relaxed to greet the rising sun.

  6. Oh how I love the calming energy and freshness in the poem! Nice to see you here Stacy :)

  7. This is such a lovely poem, a reflection that we can rise and become stronger.

  8. This is lovely. I can visualize it...the pushing hands toward the sky and swaying like a palm! Bliss.

  9. Oh, I can visualise you! You make it sound delightful, a beautiful way to greet the day.

  10. How lovely it must be to rise like a phoenix.

  11. That balancing tree pose is one I keep falling out of, but one I find most enjoyable to do.
