Poems From June 2014 Yoga & Poetry Workshop with Jenn Nunes

I Send You Out

I sent you out

I send you out

 

you know the way

 

you come back

I send you out

 

you sit down

you lean back

 

I send you out

 

you come back

in different clothes

 

I send you out

 

you come back

with a funeral

 

I send you out

you know the way

 

you come back

you lean back

your face is hidden

your hood is up

in different cities

I send you out

you come back

 

you say you’re sick

you say you won’t

 

I send you out

you know the way

you don’t come back

— Mel Coyle

 

“Fidget Poem” (Child’s Pose)

Arms extended

Hands like searching

Stars

Belly like a quiet

Barrel of apples

Legs like rose buds

Waiting to unfurl

Third eye

Looking inside

Wondering whether

To Talk

Or be silent

Earth could be sand

Could be water

— Jenny Poplar
