100 Days of Yoga, Day 84

A DAY COMES

A day comes

when the mouth grows tired

of saying “I.”

Yet it is occupied

still by a self which must speak.

Which still desires,

is curious.

Which believes it has also a right.

What to do?

The tongue consults with the teeth

it knows will survive

both mouth and self,

which grin – it is their natural pose –

and say nothing.

~ Jane Hirshfield

 

 

Yours in Grace, Chris
