The Art of Backbending (Poem and Images)

The body takes a shape because we suggest it to do so.

When we enter the landscape of our open heart,

We yearn for a gesture that may express what is discovered.

Or perhaps, we yearn to enter the landscape of a heart that has yet to open.

We ask the body to shift its shape and show the way.

And because of the profundity of it’s purpose,

no backbend is created equal nor can one ever be re-created….

…for a backbend ~like a sunset~

is the articulation of something bigger…

A Backbend Communicates The Inarticulate Speech of your Heart.
