manifestation of the sacred
(a new word for me)

look everywhere!
each day the
earth turns and
light comes back
squirrels feast
on black-oiled
sunflower seed that
sparrows drop
gophers too
fox’s quick tongue
sips at the birdbath

closer in
notice words
their alchemy—how
they create meaning
can weave insight and
expose the state
of the one speaking—
be meticulous
words are powerful
spread kindness
offer love
evoke the ineffable

I’m writing a poem a day. These are drafts—not final versions.
