Stumble & Fall. {Poem}

susan currie shot

i stumble upon this… “opportunity”
a chance intersection
some unknown friend with an intention and a lens

i consider the dare
tempted by adventure
in, i am

i greet the moment soaked in early light
an infinite stage
curtains up

i lean into the breath, my anchor
sweep up
peel open
fold into these postures, true companions

rung by rung i climb into this eka pada…
inching closer with each exhale
imagery circles all around

susan currie-3

i fall into this practice with 8 limbs
it catches me on the descent
at every turn

i glide out over the pacific
for some while, leaving this world
wide awake

falling in
falling in
falling in
to me

susan currie-1

my daring adventure…
