SHIFTING INTO SPRING


March Meditation

a small white candle
placed on an old silver tray
set down on the bedroom floor
a wooden match       a strike       a flame
sage       sweet grass       smoke
seed pods like rattles       shaken
a bit of dry moss
a flight feather found
twenty years ago       on a beach
after watching an osprey
dive into Puget Sound       catch a fish
labor it away
trailing droplets
of blood and water blessings
memory
this feather brushing skin       
in the cold of night
full moon light
a re-found piece of butterfly wing
a hummingbird nest        
collected
after a summer storm
tossed its pebble-sized babe
a small tin cup      enameled white
filled with fresh water
from the bathroom sink
a flower with white petals
from the kitchen table
from the grocery store
from a neighbor friend
dipped
to sprinkle
March blessings
on skin
a thought
a prayer
a sweet desire
grace
a soft pillow
warm blankets
whistling wind
quiet bed
breathing
just breathing
