WP September 20th, 2020: Forward Fold

(Uttanasana)

What in your life has folded back on itself?
How did you first recognize your past come again?

Which door has been flung open?
What was the weather on the other side of the threshold?
Did you pass through?

Which “other shoe” has dropped? Who dropped it
and where did it land?
Will you – can you – wear it again?

How did you give in to the pull
and keep on your feet?

What unexpected pleasure did you find in this tension?

And what of your crown?
