Playing 5-7-5

I recently came across a giveaway contest that asked for yoga haikus to win.  Thought you would enjoy the four I came up with.

deep breath open heart
within sweet serenity
on and off the mat

goddess warrior child 
strength and softness in balance 
full breath surrender 

mindfully living
here in the present moment
life's joyous embrace
arms extend reaching
for the stars, feet on the earth
much more than a pose

I enjoyed playing with the 5-7-5 syllable poem and think you will to.  Give it a try and add your ideas in the comments below.
