THE DRISHTI OF POETRY by Mark Tulin Standing on my head, I see the world from the ground up increasing my pranic energy Holding onto warrior pose strengthens my focus and resolve to continue my flowery verse Deepening my metaphor and finding my voice, staying in the moment, moving closer to the point When my mind weakens, and I grow skeptical, I slide back into a relaxing child’s pose Some days it’s wiser to go slow or not at all, put away the stress of writing for another day Sticking to a meter and a pace, a creative habit shouldn’t be a chore or a race Balancing between all aspects of life— not repeating the style or the topic in which I write Being mindful of the poetry that I pen, dwelling in the honest simplicity from the mat within.
