Spinal Tap

god is in my spine
she taps on my vertebrae
patiently in morris code
spelling out messages of freedom

she dives deep in my muladhara
whispering mantras to the embers
to ignite the transformative dance
one that clears the pathway to atma

Om Shanti Shanti
Om Shanti Shanti

she calls forth reinforcements
a pose of guides and angels
to serve orders in code
deciphering them reveals miracles

waiting patiently in asana
a dog bending downward
increases god’s flow in my spine
she feels like an idea about to explode

Om Shanti Shanti
Om Shanti Shanti

the embers turn into a soft flame
dancing up and around my slowly
like a mountaineer leaving fingerprints
in every nook and crevice

she blankets my skin with a warm hug
that nourishes my inner child
as she taps on my vertebrae
healing wounds that cut deep

my sahasrara blossoms
larger than a lotus at dawn
perfuming the air with love and compassion
i see life with new eyes

Om Shanti Shanti
Om Shanti Shanti
