Half Moon

my hand outstretched in half moon pose today

Half Moon

by Carmen H Gray

Today, as I leaned down into the ground

Connecting to the floor with the right hand and foot

While lifting the other half of myself skyward

Gravity pulled drops of sweat down

To puddle together near my right fingertips

I was invited to remember

How two opposing energies

Generate a power that is greater than its singular parts

And how each difficulty we encounter

Requires an equanimous state

Though we have toppled over many times

We are drawn to keep seeking

That pause in a perfectly balanced pose

Between the Moon and the Sun

It is quite exquisitely powerful and subtle both

Like a knowing look

Shared by companioned hearts
