Tree Pose

February 4, 2011

if you breathe in and lift your right leg up foot resting on your inner thigh knee pulled right perpendicular to the earth and balance to the left
if you raise your hands in prayer and take them to the heart
if you breathe deep as if going beneath sea water
if you bow your forehead down like the willow
if you like the dogwood are fresh and bendy in if bloom
if you are heavy with the salty and sticky syrup of the sandal tree would you give birth to it:
and exhale this thousand and one suns and moving your mouth a temple your body the branches and silvery barks is it the sun who moves you as you who moves the sun?
