Suddenly there was a shift in the atmosphere, even the birds could feel it. The red cardinal perched in the middle of winter snow. The backyard gate swinging. Like something was coming.
I’d never forgotten, the road that leads me home. Midst of maple in the air, the sayings of elders “take the Lord along with you” “when love builds the house”- the window curtains may fade, time slips over into another the day, Ceramic angels have multiplied scattered around the living room.
we are all, God’s birds, chanting our own tune,
temporarily the ash starts to burn
colors of “Josephs’ robe” -lights up the sky
in the shadow of moon’s trees
and we live and we live
