Yoga Poem 4: Inversion

{Image from Sydney Le Fever on Behance}

Inversion

Salamba } the body breaks the surface
with height it is permitted to see perspective
and learns the wisdom of the sacred woods
life is a kind of process we witness with ease

The shape begets the mind – begets the soul
we are working ourselves into more solid forms
justifying our breath with deep guttural signs
the body bends and we are rendered infinite
balancing and yet balanced – released

trust is a kind of inversion
placing the heart well above the mind
falling trance to the thrumming of pulse
believing the body to be stronger
than the pull of the earth – knowing we belong there
in the middling well
to drink of spaciousness
& be full.
