Before we arrived at this place,
We lied still in the dank dark earth,
Waiting for that moment when you and I fell inline to cross paths.
From opposite ends we unfurled and stood in the thick of tall dark branches,
Until we found in each other a reflection that pushed them aside to let the light through.
Breath by breath
Mouth to mouth.
Transforming us to divine
Woke up in a funk today
In light of some recent events in the world, the states, my microcosm, the home, my room….
The first thought after teaching yoga this morning is that I need to clean, and then I’ll feel better,
But the heaviness would not leave for me to lift a limb.
Then I thought, I need a little motivation,
And so I went to the nursery,
Walked around conversing with my enlightened toddler,
Found a healthy new fiddle leaf fig and a lush maiden hair fern.
I never pretended to be perfect.
Happiness in a swipe and small talk, “yes the weather is much nicer today… no receipt please.” No paper trails.
Now my Boston fern and birds nest fern look happier and truth is, their chances of survival have just increased with their new companions….
As well as mine.

The beauty of it all is, by themselves, each of them struggled to stay up and balance. I had them walk forward and link arms and try and they all smiled simultaneously. Instantaneously it became easy. From all walks of life, all ages, genders, and without a thought on what another’s story is, we created union.
