Thinking back with fondness to the Cowboy Poetry Gathering that used to be held about this time of year in Pincher Creek. Sadly no longer going, but it is in our memories and poetry still.
Happy Earth Day

I don’t have a yoga poem (at least not yet) but National Yoga Day yesterday brought to mind Steve Brooks’ marvellous ballad Yoga Lady; the story of a cowboy falling for a pretty yogi because, “She did things with her own body he could not do with a rope”. You can find the song on his Chasing Grace album, on SteveBrooks.net, and you can listen to it right here.
Steve will be a feature at the Austin International Poetry Festival this April. Check AIPF.org for the full line-up
