Yellow – the colour of Autumn, the colour of hope. The Autumnal transition that is happening all around us is so evident at the moment, from the leaves scattered on the ground to the smell of fires burning each evening, to people walking past with their coats zipped up and scarves wrapped tightly around their necks.
The music of Seamus Heaney’s poetry is something to dip into when you feel disconnected from nature. He constantly refers to the images of Ireland that we are so familiar with. He was a master craftsman who understood the balance in the weighting of his words. In yoga we seek to balance the mind & body. When we listen to our bodies we find ourselves being breathed, being lead by the inner dance.
His poems are filled with air, dazzle & light. The rain soaked Irish climate, he scolds himself for waiting to ‘see again’ & acknowledge what was extraordinary around him.
In the final line of Fosterling, Heaney says –
So long for air to brighten,
Time to be dazzled and the heart to lighten.
Go out and see what wondrous spectacles appear, and feel your spirits soar.
