Friday Flash 55 — Be

Not there, here.
yourself like a stone.
Smooth and pure with a feather on top, please.
No please, just be. Be solid. Be soft.
Be reflection.

Be here, not there.
yourself like a stone 
on a stone on a stone. Please 
yes with the touch of a feather, here and there.
Reflection be.

Written for Friday Flash 55 - My post in exactly 55 words - for the G-Man

Nice,the way your poem balances itself out. Just so. This should be in a yoga book. It's hard to be light as a feather, as supportive as a stone.
Happy New Year, Lydia!

This SO does have a Tantric aura about it.
Different, Dynamic, and Delightful!
