Walking through the blues.

Perfect Practice

Posted on April, 3rd 2013 by Marie

As I start

My practice

Little wrinkles

Take my focus

And my mind

Drifts

In irritated annoyance

Over such

Disorder

 

I bring myself

Into the awareness

That sometimes

Stillness is

More important

Than perfection

 

Peace arrives

And I refocus on

My practice

 

And as I go deeper

Wrinkles re-enter

Under my back

Creating bulges that

Hijack

My thoughts

Yet again

 

And I wonder

If stillness

Is more

Important

Than perfection?

 

As I befriend

The wrinkles

Under my back

And welcome

Their presence

In my life

It becomes

Crystal clear

 

That

Stillness

Is

Perfection
