Yoga for Writers, Nancy P. Shires

Ellen Johnston-Hale Contest for Light Verse, 2010 First Place

Yoga for Writers
Nancy P. Shires

the ad said,
calling to mind
Woolf on her head
hoping to unbind
sentences stuck there.
Auden and Pound on mats
twisting words so fair
out of mental flats.
Hemingway on one leg
balancing a keg
of muses, and Whittier
simply getting fittier.
