Say Good Morning to God!

I wake at early dawn - my heart full and heavy with thoughts and memories...

I prepare to meet a wonderful student who graciously travels from afar to deepen her practice. We have both grown together - she and I - as a practitioner and a teacher.

My student blossoms
and beautifully opens
in Trikonasana,
strongly rooting
and arching into a backbend--
her fingers shining brightly

She roots
and explodes radiantly
and organically
in exquisite body prayer,
as her voice spontaneously
and blissfully proclaims:
"Say good morning to God!"
