Oh, please, please no more poems by Rumi, Kahlil Gibran, and Danna Faulds at the beginning and end of yoga classes. Couldn't we just branch out a little? We could read Rumi's quatrains. We could read Hafiz. We could read from...the Yoga Sutras or the Mahabharata. Or Joanne Kyger. Or Hafiz. Or Gary Snyder. Or Rilke. Or a bazillion other things. I'm sick of cliched abstract poems about finding balance.
