Asking Guidance

Young light
lays her tender touch
on the camel line of rounded mountains,
and over the rippling lake.
Morning warbler music
chants me back to waking.
Two vermillion birds
meet and dance mid-air before my very eyes,
and sunrise rays illuminate
their full-red pulsing breasts.

Standing at the edge
of trust,
I ask the light and winged ones
for guidance.

      Carolyn! So good to hear from you, and yes, I wish I could read to you. You have inspired me to return to a practice I used to do, recording the poems I put up on the site, so you could click the audio… Sending love
