Yogi’s Journey

Number twenty-eight was inspired by my yoga classes:

Downward dogs
turn eager heads,
salute the sun in
warming transformation:
toes root downward,
grounding the forest
as deepened breath flows
through swaying branches.
Stern warriors rise
from padded soil,
stand strong and firm,
then dive as swans
to the rolling earth
where they become boats
atop crystal waters,
bridges joining
shore with shore.
They cascade down,
waterfalls winding
inward toward
final relaxation.
