LIVING SMALL by Lavinia Kumar

Om intoned the yogi

seriously sitting

cross-legged on the floor

Om, said I,

gazing ahead


at the spider on the wall

slowly weaving its web

to perfection

and – a flash –

a fly was caught:

a supper zapped.


And those immersed

in Om

missed a meal.


About Lavinia: I’m from Ireland, my husband from India, and the lives of our four kids are just as mixed up.  So of course I write.  And have been published on both sides of the Atlantic.
