Restorative Yoga

Banks on his back (2)

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.
