Gentled soul,
strengthened heart,
a natural elixir
quieting the trauma
that came before,
awareness coming to life,
each tendon,
each muscle,
each joint flexed…
awareness bringing balance.

Quiet practice
gifting to the self,
each time giving back,
treasured asanas
for a mind in turmoil,
a body defying age,
a soul crying out…
the aftermath was another gift,
was balance,
was heightened awareness.

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
