To The Universal Life Force:
To My Beloved God,
To my friend and companion,
When you go to the store can you pick up
more wire and stones,
garnets and carnelian, citrine, aventurine, lapis lazuli, quartz of all sorts
I wanted to make a list lest I forget
that I need things to reflect your light,
to make things that brighten the day,
some way to say, “I care, I’m here, I can hear what you are not going to say
except through me.
You speak so many beings into life
and I am only one
but you make us each
equipped to say what you would not say
any other way.
