#196. My Portion

March 9, 2010

After a desert
of dust and ash
how cool and pleasant to drink
from a well
no matter the distance
or how unknown
the water bearer.

_____

I know She makes this a holy place
an oasis
a source of goodness.

_____

Am I able to touch her
in this same way?

_____

Shall we draw water
together
dance around the well
in a dance
we can only do together?

_____

The ancient stars know.

    That last line is maybe the best one ever.
    I love it.
