in the flood of heavy rainfall
stand with your feet on the edges of the mat
letting them settle deeply – as if into mud
focus on the bowl of the pelvis as you let your hips release into fluid figure of eight movements for a while
when you’ve had enough – follow the ripple of an exhalation as you fold forward
let each foot spread into the yielding ground – stay a while
easing with the inhale and folding again with the exhale.
what will happen when
cold earth is soaked with rainfall?
a new spring follows
