STRETCH for peace.
My yoga stretch charges my batteries,
untangles muscles; lets loose lurking lactic acids,
& increases my joint range of motion.
I flex like an Osprey lining the fish up head 1st by reversing her outer toe
so as to grasp it with 2 toes in front and 2 behind.
(She also has barbed pads on her soles to help with said grip. Pedicure!!)
But Presidents? Princes? Queens? Caliphs?
How about a peace STRETCH?
We hear him first. Then we spot him perched on this impossibly slim, tall snag. And then while we sit on the old hydroelectric “pier,” we get “buzzed” by a juvenile Bald Eagle, watch as one of his parents (my guess) wafts by, and note that a Merlin is keeping track of us all–probably doing his own version of a blog or e-Bird report.
(Ray, the Bird Guru, is on the left. Ray’s identifying birds; I’m thinking, “how can I turn this into a 420?”)
