Morning Yoga Practice - Poem by Alison Cassidy

As I stood on my head
in front of the fire,
two black and tan faces
settled beside me.

The dachshund’s
long nose
sniffed the heat.
The tortoiseshell
licked her
lingeringly -
presumptuously.

The usual growl
didn’t eventuate
and for several moments more,
peace reigned
in the pale autumn light.

    S few words, yet so finely crafted with such an overall massive impact. The art of true poetry

    The usual growl
    didn’t eventuate
    and for several moments more,
    peace reigned
    in the pale autumn light......... A very unique image of peaceful morning start. A beautiful poem of your style with a bit of humour as well.

    Regards
    Naseer
