Half-Standing Forward Fold

(Ardha Uttanasana)

What is the shape of your tension?
The color and smell? And
how to you let it go?

Through which part of your body
does it leave you?

Does it make a sound as it goes?
What moves into the space it took up?

How do you keep fluid while your heart reaches
forward and upward?

When you pull away and flow again
downward and towards the earth
what does your heart hold on to?
