Speaking of yoga...

late season snow-storm...
yet again I have to rise
from 'savasana'*

* In yoga, 'savasana' is the Corpse or Dead pose. This lying-down pose is how one ends one's physical yoga practice sessions.


And if I were to artistically alter this haiku, since Easter will be on March 23 this year:

Easter snow-storm
yet again I have to rise
from 'savasana'
