Our small dog rests with ease, legs open in the sun
Such utter repose. I feel it myself,
After a restorative yoga class, only four poses in an hour;
My nervous system is at rest
Sitting here, next to the dog in the late sun,
I gaze at the light on the water, the edges blur
The day and the moment are mysteriously functioning without me
My people, living and dead are curiously peaceful.
I am restored.
