Yoga Poetry
You Rise Up to Meet the Falling World

Whatever you lift to the sky, the sky covers:

middle-of-the-night exaggerations dissolve

to slivers of sadness on your pillow,

middle-of-life jolts compress the heavens

into one streak of sleet, thawing into softer ground.

Like the rain cycle that obscures the view,

you can lose your way on old ground or forget

the innate blue light in everything, ready again.

The surface of the tall grass spins in the breeze

it swirls into existence. The present twists down

to meet you each time you catch your foot.

Stars inform daylight or its absence.

We are made to catch the falling world,

just as the earth is shaped perfectly to catch us.
