Morning Worship

Goldfish in Water Garden, June 2014-KPShe walks in bare feet

through dew-laced grass

naked feet on moist earth

and sighs with her whole body.

She watches shiny orange bodies

in green brown water

cluster around the bubbling water

lips kissing the water’s surface.

She watches as flying gold bodies

flit in to steal small black seeds

from tubular man-made devices

boldness born of ceaseless hunger.

She sighs into the morning stillness

inhales the sweet smell of whiteflowers

that perch on long delicate stems

under the cypresstree.

She quiets her mind

opens her senses

fills her heart with emerald light

and begins another day.

Goldfinch at feeder, June 2014-KP

About kp

I am a woman and a mother, a sister and a wife. I have called myself a socialist and a feminist, an environmentalist and an activist, a pagan and an atheist. But, at this stage in my life, none of these labels feel right. I am searching; trying to find an inner calm; trying to make peace with life's disappointments; trying to answer the big questions in my own small life.
