Interesting People Post: The Very Pregnant Yoga Lady
I was very impressed when I entered the yoga studio the other day and noticed that our instructor was a very very pregnant lady.
An Ode to the Very Pregnant Yoga Lady
Stretching out your toes
Breath of candle hot and rogue airs pushing
against your stringy hair
but there she is, the belly
Strong and pulsing veins that hold together
All the strains from downward dog position
framing ever so acutely–
for there she is, the belly
Blowing kisses with the leaps of songs
muttered secrets to our joints, pushing forward
You can do it!
So as to like the belly.
Giggling underneath your breath at pot smokers
In the back room, they cannot stretch the way you do
Regardless of tremendous
and rotund stretched belly.
This is like no other class I’ve done, no man
no woman as before could ever take the floor
The way she does with so much
Care, for she is always known to be…
The Very Pregnant Yoga Lady.
