Meditation 57


January is not a bad time to begin.
There’s always rose petals and pampas   
 

grass seeds strewn like new tea cups
into the blue mountain, down the pinion

trail where junipers stand open
mouthed and still. The oak

titmouse fusses in gray
stacattos over my patio

table. A mosaic of crushed
pinfeathers. This tender wrapping of wedge

insists I braid my strands gently; fifty-seven
winter mornings divine an urgent straining of mist and blood,

or how honeycomb weaves darkness.
