Scintillating music

Cactus needles, Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona

scintillating music
carries her into most nights
with a flagrant disregard
for what her neighbors think
a leap of faith
that’s how she found her way
and it dawns on her
each time she prays late at night
that the spill that might have happened
did not
the end that might have come
did not
the leap that might have killed her
did not
she knows she owes everything
to that leap
and is not nonchalant

Three Prayers


God of the kitchen,
may nothing dreadful emerge
from my pots and pans.
~~ ~~ ~~
God of corn and wheat,
may harvests not be hasty
on my little farm.
~~ ~~ ~~
God of stone and star,
how can I ignore the ways
that you sustain me?
