Country Morning Salute

by Maureen Glaude

On this country deck in September
beside two tiny fallen pine cones,
I unfold into cobra posture

limbs and skin stretching
supine beneath the sun
a sense of peace spreads over
my pose of the corpse

a windrush in the aspen tops
intermittent outdoor chimes
then a hammer on a plank

my audience --boxed begonias
their leaves in autumn matching
the petalsÂ’ reds

sunlight streaks
across the deck floor slabs
between shadows

I remember this one...from Poesie.com? Quite vivid, evocative. Makes me want to take up the practice. I salute you oh flexible one.

Mo, I love this peaceful moment in your life. The cobra is one of my favorite poses, so is the autumn season.
