Last Asana of the Sequence

Savasana--Corpse Pose

It is late night in the desert.
Miles of cool highway
slip by in the dark.
Thin saguaros, tall as a man,
stand guard by the roadside,
their arms full of blossoms
gathered in the night, haunted
by pale luna moths, the color
of twilight. In a sky deep
as breath, a circus of stars
tumbles and twirls, though no one
is watching, not even me.
All along the spine of the sleeping
mountains, the white line glows.

Mmm, nice conclusion to the series.

Life here is quite mad--have had four teens here filming since Friday afternoon. And they'll be back after school tomorrow...

I think this might be my favorite.

Robbi said...

What kind of thing are they filming Marly?
Glad you like it Lou. I think I like the previous one best, or maybe Paschmottinasana, but it's hard to say.

Robin said...

Just gorgeous! I love so many of the images here! Sky deep as breath--wonderful!

Robbi said...

Thanks. It may be my favorite as well.
