As a first offering . . .


the air smells good today

straight from the mysteries

of the inner courts of God


A grace like new clothes thrown

across the garden

free medicine for everybody


The trees in their prayer

the birds in praise

the first blue violets kneeling


Whatever came from being

is caught up in being

drunkenly forgetting

the way back


Rumi (1207-1273)
