"Somewhere, out at the edges, the night
Is turning and the waves of darkness
Begin to brighten the shore of dawn.
The heavy dark falls back to earth
And the freed air goes wild with light.
The heart fills with fresh, bright breath
And thoughts stir to give birth to colour."
John O'Donohue "Benedictus"
With a deep inhalation,
take your right leg away from your body,
in a big backward step.
Both your hands should be firmly planted on your mat,
your left foot between your hands,
head tilted toward the ceiling.
