Ode To My Strength And Balance Instructor

Written for:  Poetic Asides April 2016 Challenge – Day 25
Write an exercise poem, e.g. specific exercise, incorporating exercise into the poem, or dedicated to a piece of exercise equipment.

You warm us up, get blood flowing
with energy and a smile.
Men and women of varied ages–post
surgery, partially disabled, and those
in good health–all benefit from
an hour of non-stop motion,
and encouragement. Concentration
on all parts of the body
is a roborant for everyone
who participates. An array
of equipment is on hand
to use in conjunction with our workout.
Exercises are varied, humor is embraced,
and we try not to begrudge you
vacation time.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
