Sun Salutation


Nothing new stirs

but out of sight and so far down

it loses faith as it rises

uncertain of direction

in the long cold darkness.


But I know how it goes

waking to landscapes changed overnight

brief joys I’ve grown toward

taking me with head bowed

beyond doubt’s shadow.


This morning the trees and I

have nothing left to leave behind.

The convalescent sky

can’t hide its face of ash

behind such unfleshed fingers,


the way it always is

before some slim green thing

at last defies the hopeless surface

terrified justified free

too beautiful to not believe in.
