A Troubled Reunion: a #TankaProse

It has been years, but we are assigned the same co-teaching class again. Echoes of past trauma arise, and with them the familiar tension and gut cramping.

But I am not the same as I was, then. I can practice relational Tai Chi. I am water.

It’s time to flow.

no discouragement
even experiencing
unfortunate news
take one breath, then another
and stay in the moment
