Surya Namaskar

Lifting my wings, being given breath,
        I salute the sun.
Returning that gift, I bow
       To salute the earth.
Hovering now, over its' firmness
        I feel it, belly to belly.
Swooping, first upward, then backward,
Lifting playfully, facing the earth,.again,
        I rejoice.
The patterns of evolution embedded in my cells
Move me in and out of poses,
Riding on my breath.

-Janet Hockfeld, 2004
