Pre-Dawn Om

And now today the moon, a white crescent still,

lies just above the treetops in the East

with Venus above no longer below and

whomever else higher still above all

having changed places and these things

that are new to me and mysterious thus

ever more charming as are the many

yoga asanas the tales of Hanuman flying

over any obstacle touching the sun

the very thing of walking out from my house

before dawn viewing the firmament while

lying in a large room of familiar strangers

each to our own small space watching

the light slowly change out the narrow window

chanting Om once together making prayerful hands

silently rising at last and going forth to meet

our various sorts of days my own being

I strongly feel the most wonderful of them all.
