Savasana



Peggy Hong
swimming into stillness forget
tomorrow forsake
yesterday

air enters and leaves
careless breath ushers
space of nothing

body spreads
a perfect circle
into forgiving earth
mountains grow deeper underground

blood and lymph pulse in saline
purge sedimental attachments

settle into nameless
breezed clean mind
