2016 OctPoWriMo - #10

The Practice

I grasp the purple edge of the yoga mat
recognize the familiar texture
inhale the institutional smell
One practiced motion issues forth the unfurled essence,
my island of focus
of meditation
of peace.
On this lavender oasis,
sanctuary for introspection
vessel of reverence
in soul-to-sole sun salutations
I set my solitary Intention

Today’s Prompt: Unfolded
