Earth and Sky

by Ivan M. Granger


Original Language English

Yogis do not touch

the earth
beneath their feet.

All breath and fire,
they grow thin,
rootless,

reaching only for sky.

Wild-eyed shamans,
earth's children,

pull medicine
from peyote nightmares
and twilight.

Attending to family and village,
rooted,

they do not soar.

Earth — Sky

Neither shamans
nor yogis
find heaven —

everywhere!
