(Parsva Savasana)

What happens when you enter a new morning
from a small rift in the universe?

What sounds do you hear that you’ve never really
heard before?

What does the light touch? And where does it touch you?
How does the world respond? How do you respond?

Away from clocks and old habits, how do you identify
– your hunger?
– your need for rest?

How do you satisfy your restlessness in this place?
How do you motivate yourself to push through
when night slides over you like a blanket?

(Vrikshasana)

How have you grown?
In the shadows of others?
Alone in a field of green?

What nourishment do you pull from your roots?
What unseen, underground attachments do you have?

When the weather comes
what does it do to you?

When the seasons change
how to do they change you?

Whose initials are carved into your being?
Did you weep? And if so –
were your tears sweet as a maple’s?
