I fold & unfold as I rise & fall


My breath deep & constant,

A rhythm well in sync.

My body folds & unfolds.

The folding & unfolding, rising & falling- all seem so subtle & monotonous at the start

As I go deeper into the process there is a wave of things folding & unfolding, rising & falling within me.

My thoughts, my feelings, my emotions, my instincts- all of them rise & fall through the wave of my breath;

All of them fold & unfold along with my physical body.

It’s a beautiful journey through the breath, mind & body.

Then comes my voice, layering the process that is already on a roll.

The entire texture of the fabric I am weaving, changes .

It changes to a new colour ,new feel & new flow.

Then you add your breath, voice & touch to my process

& the entire story of my fabric takes a new form.

It’s like our day-to-day story;

How we rise & fall with each other;

How we fold & unfold with the events that happen;

How we resonate with the breath – with self & with each the other.

Life seems like a constant journey of rising & falling, folding & unfolding- too simple to watch,

Too elaborate to live through.

My entire being is contained within this process of rising & falling, folding & unfolding;

Constantly changing form, colour, shade & texture;

Yet maintaining the uniqueness that I am blessed with.
