My Favorite Yoga Posture

My favorite yoga posture
is not the continuous motion
of clouds on a summer evening,
or the sky in its asana
of perfect emptiness,
nor the gesture of a cobra, a locust, a lion.
To each of us a yoga
ancient as our innocence!
Mine must be 
the Fallen Angel Pose
which is whatever my body
is doing right now
like a leaf in November
finally scraping the Earth,
mere matter rooted
in the mysterious prayer of
its weight by the rolling world,
inevitably sacred.
