Crow Friday: Crow Yogi

Picture Poetry with a crow bent.

I dream of being a yoga teacher

Teaching a class full of black birds

Starting with the mountain pose 

And working our way into a bind–

Where we wrap our wings 

Around our back in reverse namaste 

While standing on one leg

Breathing deeply from the inside

Of the back of our throat

Tongue on the roof of the mouth

Belly to the back feather

Sphincter squeezed tight in mula bandha 

While closing our eyes to darkness

And seeing the light within.
