Pearls of Relief #nablopomo

Feet tight, long legs tense
spine relaxed like a pearl strand;
the others follow.
 
Head throbs, fingers press;
my scalp, temples; tension flees.
pearls cascade, collapse.
 
Jaws clenched, teeth grinding–
they too will follow the feet,
long legs, spine, arms, hands.
 
Grateful so, heart knows
how much we can take, then–
sweet pearls of relief.
