Death & Life in a Yoga Pose. ~ Michael Mark {Poem}

moi in savasana


Lay my body down.

Make me one with the Earth.


After feeding me with harvests,

holding me with gravity,

washing me in rivers,

cooling me with winds,

still I doubt the Mother.



Plant in me your stillness

to know

no end, no beginning, no moment,


only flowing.



Grey-bearded, fresh-eyed, frail-boned, smooth-skinned,

fading, radiant, teacher of life!


Precious pose of the Corpse—open me!
