February 7th, 2021: Headstand

(Sirsasana)

When was the last time your perspective was flipped
on its head?

How did you keep your balance?

When you find yourself tipping backward, 
what pulls you forward?
When tipping forward, what pulls you back?

How do you keep your head lifted
when the pull of the full world is bringing
your shoulders toward your ears? is pressing
your gut against your heart? is taxing
your brain?

How do you translate your vision 
into navigational instructions? 
How do you find your body in the tumbling 
of every day?

How do you remember to keep breathing?
