Today I played 
tag–you’re it! 
Tucked my navel 
into my spine and sank
my fingertips into the earth. 
Birthed the sun through my toes 
pressed out, and behind me, 
in child’s pose. 

Placed a grin on sidewalk Sam. 
Thrust my hips into downward dog, 
passed the frisbee over the fence, 
returned to myself in goddess pose. 
Let my thighs hit the mat
felt my belly’s deepest breath. 
Watched the world become 
that which it has always been.
