sweet and fragrant
in the cold morning air
jasmine tea

Screaming yellow leaves
appear suddenly among
the abundant brown
Fussy toddlers scream.
Hoards of teen girls run by--
Friday at Walmart
Forgive me, Lord
for my mind sometimes sprouts wings
and flies away.

pounding raindrops
seeping paralyzing cold
into my heart

Moving forward,
we step out in fear--

people are mirrors
held up by God for us
to see ourselves.

In the deafening silence
God Speaks.

I advance uncertainly,
yet balanced and centered.
I do not fall.

angels heal
in the hidden
mists of sleep
