Corpse Pose

Savasana, lying like a corpse, but conscious.

No more struggling, awareness, tension subsiding slowly –

my mind wandering onto a dark path.

Throwing you in shadow today. New Moon.

Conjunction

Before today’s sunrise, our two brightest planets,

Venus and Jupiter, came close together.

Both inside my one field of view –

“An illusion. Only from our Earthly perspective,”
