By a Window of Trees

We do yoga together

You stretch your arm carefully
so as not to pull on your scar

I fight gravity to stay upright
Create will from firm flesh

You brittle and folding easily
Me bulky with new growth

We make a strange pair
in the tiger pose.

We breathe calm breath in a steady stream
Inside us cells are busy multiplying

Mine the blurprint for a life
Yours the army gathering

Sarah Delahunty

We end cross legged
and talk of exactly what there is to see

In this room, in the quiet, by a window of trees
Without lifting our eyes rto the hills
