Yoga Happens Between Poses. ~ Michael Mark {Poem}

transition walk through light


it’s not the Dog

not the Down


closer to

the lowering

while rising


into stillness


and just as we settle

it is gone


as we are


dropping, lifting

to Baby Cobra


arrow-straight arms in Warrior Two

are neither arrows nor straight


there is no straight line in our bodies

in nature

in between the flowing inhales and



as sweat forms and

slides down our forms



muscle from muscle

breath from breath

mind from body

past from present

expectation from is


exactly there.
