Poetry – Doing Yoga – Tonmoi Das Kashyap

Doing Yoga

I stare at the TV, 
thinking how easily 
they do the yoga poses
trying to copy halfheartedly. 
Mind sometimes
asks to give up. 

It’s now or never, 
I advise my mind,
to grab the opportunity
with the current scenario. 

I watch the TV 
listen to the instructions
and try to do chakrasana.
