“You are not this body”



“You are not this body”


the Teacher says,

but each morning

the million little cells

lift me from bed

to new light.

They congregate

into organ, sinew, blood flow.

Each in singular dance,

and nothing holds

without the whole body

to rise up in.

And you know it, Kat, because you got up and did yoga at 6:30am this morning! Glad you found your way to my blog.

This is great, Carolyn! It reminds me of some early lines from Galway Kinnell.

Greetings, Lea! So glad that you took the time to visit my blog … and to be compared to Galway Kinnell! Hope to see you at a poetry event soon. I am going to Green St. to hear Janet and Susie tomorrow. Perhaps I’ll see you there.
