All the World is an Asana

Mayurasana (Peacock Pose)

Mayurasana (Peacock Pose)

             All the World is an Asana
We are petals on a flower practicing our yoga
This body is no longer strong or agile.
Dormancy has become her favorite posture
her light is not free but stored
She craves a change of asana.

Maples awaken in the distance with spring growth of swaying red buds
Birds and bugs fly and wiggle
stream currents flow
all moving beings in their unique
flowing, growing, flying and wiggling asanas.

Rocks still and sturdy in their unperturbed poses
the sun in fiery, shining warrior stance
and the moon in golden silent savasana –
They gaze at us and dream that all the world
has moved into the asana of loving.

    Carole, Carole, Carole! I came across your asana poem and photo, enjoyed them. Forgot you are a fellow poet. Hmmm…was that Warrior I or Warrior II you spoke of 🙂 ?
