Something for the Weekend - Breathe, Surrender, Sip Sweet Nectar.

Posted by Yoga Professionals on October 4, 2018 at 11:05 PM

Maybe we have a little more time for ourselves at the weekend, maybe not. Here's a short poem with a slow and gentle reminder to be present, mindful, create space with conscious breathing and observe the mind-chatter drift like clouds. Soon enough the sun will come out and we can give thanks.

Breathe, Surrender, Sip Sweet Nectar.

When I have no expectations

it all exceeds my wildest dreams.

I do not think

about what should be,

I take my time,

my own, not yours, or theirs

but mine

and nature’s simple moments

of the divine.

Like the air I breathe

it inspires to great action

yet easily surrenders,

dies to give birth to the next,

a single moment of awareness

on the journey

of unfolding.

I am drawn like the honey bee

to search for colour

and sweetness,

now awakened

to the inter-connected magic

that a flirtatious whisper

can share.

So I breathe, surrender

sip sweet nectar,

take my time,

my own, not yours, or theirs

but nature’s and mine.

It all unfolds


inspired by the



gifts of nature

and the divine.
