The Sunday Muse 153 — OM

Merging chakras
stretching spine
draw the qi down
from mother sky
pull qi up from
earth father’s core
heart-mind clear slate
all sea, no shore
astronaut, i’m
one with all, OM

 

Energy emanates from this photo that I tried to siphon from and into words.

 

 

Carrie is this week’s host of The Sunday Muse.
