Sun Salutation

Sun Salutation

First arrow of sun,
a seedling of
of light planted upon
the sapling,
awakens this young pine,
also a seedling,
an upstart, emerging.
Light green is born this morning
rays enlighten the day,
make this traveler beam
to breathe in what
the sun chooses
to frame in yellow
on a wooded path,
a gift so easily missed yet
always, there,
especially today.
