where prayer flags and birdsong meet—
my joy is complete.

Noisy cactus wren,
can you outshout the church bells
that now stun the air?

to bask in the sun?

Footprints are sometimes visible in the labyrinth at Unity of Phoenix Spiritual Center.
 


Easter’s come and gone—
I follow nail-scarred footprints
as I journey on.
