Plant the Feet by Janet Hockfeld

 

Tadasana_3_2

Plant the feet,

Allow the soles to become 

one with the earth.

Growing roots deeply downward

Releases energy upward, 

Awakening sleeping cells

At the core of ones’ being, 

Radiating life to the surface.

Undoing

As I feel the earth beneath my feet, 

Streams of life pour through me. 

Rooting downward, releasing upward, 

Prana seeks out tensions

Held in corners of my body-memory. 

My brain-memory may not know 

      They are there

       Those places

        Now

           Expanding.
