WP November 1st, 2020: Compass Pose

(Parivrtta Surya Yantrasana)

Look where you’re going.
How many directions are you moving in
at once?

What are you leaving behind?

Describe your spine as it moves –

Does it give in the winds like a sapling?
Or does it resist and resent accommodating
external forces – or
accommodating your own limbs?

How do you get in your own way?

What do your arms reach for?
Where are your legs determined to take you?

How does your skin sense the changing
light/darkness, heat/cold?
Where does your mind roam
as the earth roams
its path around the sun?

Where does your mind roam
on the way home?
