Warrior Pose

Warrior Pose

Except for a small candlelight, darkness
hunkers around me like the pit
into which I could easily fall.

Instead, I stand legs far apart, arms raised,
shoulders released, breath moves up. Pointing at
opposing walls, shooting through my fingers,
I can almost see

the electric charge that awakens my cells,
creating an outrageous lift to reach out against
the downward curve of night.
