Gate Pose

(Parighasana)

How much are you able to/willing to bend your very spine to let someone in?
Has it ever led to pain?

Describe where you are in the world.
What are your hinges made of?
And what exactly are you holding apart?

What is the shape of the key that opens you?
Or is there are charm that needs to be spoken?
Or needs to be whispered, or sung?

Who or what has come close to tearing you down?
How have you been able to keep your boundaries when necessary?

When you do open, what happens to your breath?
Does anything take you by surprise?
Comfort you?

Can you be at rest while open?

I would love it if you want to share your writing!
