Morning Tai Chi



Eastern sun
slowly rises
warming
Victoria Harbour

erhu strings
windswept
saturate
dawn rituals

and we move
slowly
in unison
as one

unspoken vibrations
musical meditations

enlightened affirmations!

I'm sure I've seen this photo before somewhere. Is it yours? Great connection to the poem anyway, also adds something. I particularly love the last three lines.

jakill - It is my photo. I took it in Hong Kong. All of the photos are mine.

I love you Jo, for using my favorite photo as a header :-)

This is a great photo, and such a terrific poem, Jo. I'm glad you bring this post back!

Icy, I am going to leave that header up there for a long while just for you :) That morning I spent in Hong Kong watching their tai chi completely inspired me. I tried to do it myself but my balance is not good :D
